 Kohler Shower Head Removal Question
Author: costersall (Canada)

Hey, newb here trying to replace my Kohler shower head. I have replaced a few shower heads in my time, but this is the first one that's bigger pipe size than the normal replacement shower heads you get. I removed the head and it has this plastic bit on it as well that I cant seem to remove so I was going to try removing it from the wall, but I cant seem to get that to come off either. It's possible I'm just not applying enough force, but I don't want to wreck anything and I also don't know what I'm doing. I just want to replace the whole thing with a bog standard removable one, but the Kohler one is bigger so I would need some sort of adapter or to figure out how to get it off the wall as I assume its the correct size from there? Thanks for any help!

slide the escutcheon off - it may then (or may not) be obvious

I got the plastic bit off, but I still cant get the shower arm off, its REALLY on there. I had to google Escutcheon, I'll look into that next, thanks.
