Now at the spot, the recessed lip of the sink - the place where you would install the new strainer - apply a bead of plumber's putty.

Always make it a point to rinse the sink after use, and wipe it with a clean cloth. Thorough cleaning should be done once a week. Don't use a steel wool pad or any abrasive scrubbers to clean the sink, as they can cause scratches on the surface of your sink. A little care and regular cleaning can keep your stainless steel sink sparkling.
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.
