Hi, i have just been out to do one of those taps as the valve was snapped off.
found it simpler to just get a new one, unbolt those 2 chrome nuts and install new in less than 10 minutes.

that bit your showing is the shower diverter and they usually come out and can be serviced with a couple of right size 'o' rings if you can find them. problem is theres a lot of generic copies of the same tap designs and finding parts is difficult.

i bet its stuck in position? pour some white vinager in it and leave for a while or get some heat on it as it may free off.
Also, turn water off as the drop in pressure may free it.

its a little sticky . cant get the spout back on as the thread seems smaller . not sure if something is missing from spout and where it screws back on .. are you on about changing the whole unit or just buy the tap unit where the 2 chrome nuts are 8-)

what spout, what was the problem, have you just fitted it?

can you take it out (un scrw the chrome collars) then take off front lever and taking a pic?

you probably havnt located it in the spindle right.
