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.
Glacier Bay faucets are low-cost custom designed taps, suitable for every bathroom and kitchen decor. Manufactured by the Global Union and marketed by Home Depot, the main motto of this brand is to give high-end quality products to customers, while maintaining an affordable price. Seeing the low price, most people assume that these fixtures would be just another cheap product, which is not so.
Once you are done with all this, run the water for a couple of minutes to reaffirm if the joints are fine. Mostly, there would not be any problem.
Inspect the rubber washer. From whatever little plumbing experience that I have, I have seen that most faucet leakages are caused by worn out washers and threads. Just looking at the washer itself will give you a good idea of whether it is in good condition or not. Replace the worn out washer with a new one of the same size and thickness.
