 Tube faucet

Tub faucet diverter is stuck. Replacing faucet and set screw has moved and I can maneuver it to unscrew. Do I have to call someone or is there still a chance I can get it to move back?

You might be able to rotate the spout while looking in that hole, it will eventually line up with the set screw. You'll probably find the set screw faster if you turn the spout counterclockwise. Sometimes a mirror can be used to watch the underside of the spout as you turn it.
Worse case scenario is to cut the end of the spout off and remove it in pieces.

Thank you, I'll try cutting it off. When I turn the faucet the screw moves with it.
