Eljer lavatory faucet will not shut off. Chrome knob is stuck.
I cannot get access to the faucet stem.I have pushed in the retainer, but cannot remove the chrome knob. Have drilled a hole just above the retainer and flooded inside with liquid wrench. Has sat for several weeks with more liquid wrench added. Called plumber thinking they might have a special removal tool. But, no. The plumber left because he could not remove. I am considering making a hack saw cut above the retainer, hoping i can insert a flat tool and pry the inside brass piece from the chrome. Suggestions appreciated.Tom Gray
