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.
Carefully check the inside areas of the shower head. Black residue is an indicator that the gasket needs replacement. Use a screwdriver to take the rubber gasket out.
First, drain the water from the sink completely. Mix ⅓ cup of baking soda with ⅓ cup of vinegar in a big container; the mixture will fizz instantly. Pour this solution into the sink drain immediately and wait for 10 minutes. Finish off by washing the sink with hot water. If required, repeat the steps 2-3 times.
