Hi
Does anyone know how to remove the valve from this kinedo shower. There does not appear to be any nut.

I’m not a plumber but I would try to unscrew the chrome cover off then I reckon the nut that is retaining the valve would be accessible from there.
I tried to find some instillation instructions for your make of shower but all that kept coming up was shower cubicles made by that company so I don’t know what to advise except to contact showerdoctor https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... q9pW2_zZ0K and ask them to identify the part you need and how to gain access.

Its possible whoever fitted it has put silicone behind the plate to make sure its waterproof. However this will make it difficult or impossible to unscrew. Try running a sharp thin knife round between the plate and the wall to cut through any silicone. You might even find that its only held on with silicone.

It will deffo be screwed but you're probably right about the silicone. A 12" hacksaw blade works really well

Gripping with a rubber (marigolds) glove might help :thumbright:

Thanks for all of your replies, I have managed to unscrew the chrome ring. However there is still no nut to remove the valve. It looks like I will have to take out the whole shower cubicle to remove the mixer valve from the rear. I hope I can get a part once removed or it will mean a new unit 😂

Can you take another photo then. You shouldn't need to remove the whole unit. Although trying to find a replacement part can be a whole other issue if you don't know the manufacturer.

Pull the big C clip off then slide the outer ring off and go from there :salute:

If you are referring to the dark bit at the back of the valve, that's not a clip, it's a hole for the valve to fit through.

I would try putting a pair of grips on the outer part of the darker brass fitting and try to unscrew it counter clockwise , but because it may be furred up with limescale you may need to use some bathroom spray on it first then some form of lubricant to help it turn.

Hi... I have removed the outer ring, see new photo. It looks to me like the whole shower cubicle will need to be removed. If parts are then not available, a whole new shower!
