Once you have access to the handle's retaining screw, remove it. This screw holds the handle on the faucet. Use a head screwdriver and twist it in an anticlockwise direction so that it comes off.
Before you begin repairing the shower diverter, you need to know how to dismantle it properly. Never pull it out straight, or use hammers or hooks to remove it. All you need to do is use the appropriate gear, which is available in any hardware store and gently dismantle the piece. Once it is off, use a wrench to bend the metal tube behind the knob, and cut the caulk surrounding the metal plate. Doing so will provide you with a clear view of the diverter, following which, you may proceed with the repairs.
▣ Look for drainage points in the sink. Most manufacturers now place the drainage point towards the back of the sink, rather than the center. This provides more space and convenience of use under the faucet. You also get more space in the under sink cabinets, as the drain pipe also moves away from the center. Most models have the drain points at the left or right, which helps in better drainage after utensils are piled in it.
From time to time, pour some salt water solution down the drain. This will help to control the grease buildup and stop the odors as well.
