After all those possible efforts you applied in removing the knob, the job of replacing it back is not at all wearisome. Put the valve back to its actual position and screw it back in. Using a wrench tighten the diverter valve but make sure you don't overdo it. Once everything is fixed, fidget a bit with the knob to assure that it properly points down for the bath faucet and (left or up) for the shower faucet. This action of shower faucet replacement will hint you that the knob is affixed in its correct position and it is all good for use. Quickly run a test to check its working condition. Release the water pressure by turning on the shower side. If you see no leaks, not even a single drop, then definitely your leaky shower faucet has been repaired.
Next, place a thin pipe thread and wind it around the perimeter of the stem thread. Apply pressure, and with the help of your finger push these into the faucet. Tighten the nut and bolt of the faucet with the help of a wrench. After the faucet handle has been replaced and the cap refitted, the water supply can be restored. You are finally done with the repair.
Shower handle problems are similar to all other common faucet handle issues. They require replacement either when they become old or start leaking. You can either replace the entire handle or simply replace the rubber gasket in the assembly, depending on your problem.
