Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeyLikesIt Comb Kit for Delta Faucets
Need to replace the seats and springs on the Delta shower mixing valve. I was going to replace the ball and seats but forgot to bring the seat and spring. Not realizing that there are more than one size of springs. Luck for me they a kit that had both sizes in it so I could not go wrong. It was only a buck more. The most hardest part was the shutting off the water. All you need to do is take the handle off, need Phillips screwdriver to take it off. Then you will need a channel locks to remove the valve cover. You take the valve off and inside there are two rubber seats with springs in them. Take a small screwdriver and pop them out. Then put the large part if the spring in fist with the seats and then put it all back together and you just save you $$$ from a contractor plumber.

I was unable to find my Delta Faucet model number or find my faucet model picture at Delta Faucet's website. I only found a US Patent number and could not cross-reference this to ID. Took old seats and springs to HomeDepot, compared them to kit, and I was able to figure out which one I needed to buy. I already knew how to disassemble/assemble the faucet but a first-timer might need a whole lot better or specific instructions-and encouragement-then what is packed in the kit. If it is your first time doing this kind of thing, try looking at the various videos out there on the Internet as some of them show the exact same type of faucet model and can help you. Although not one of them gives you any help to find parts numbers!. I know! I looked at a lot of them trying to find the numbers!! Repair/replacement task was no problem and the faucet's slow but consistent dripping was stopped. I congratulated myself, cleaned up the place and then went out to buy a BK Double Whopper meal for my treat. My bathroom faucet, since the year of installation, lasted 19-years before having to replace the seats and springs. The seats were smashed up and deteriorating and the springs were compressed and a bit worn. Some folks have told me that you re-use the old springs, but I opted to put in the new ones. Remember, if it drips from the spout-go for the seats and springs and if it drips from the handle-try the o-rings on the cartridge and if it drips from the ceiling, you better go call for some real help. I bought the SLD0104 D, Delta Genuine Parts, Seat and Springs Kit by BrassCraftParts. It works as advertised and I recommend it. I am a regular weekend car mechanic hero, a know-about-half-of-it DIY home repair guy who has never set my house on fire and I have worked repairing aircraft, manufacturing machinery and drywall equipment. Take care my friends,
