 Should we cut off fiberglass wall to remove retaining clip?
Author: helpingwife (NV)


Hello, this is my first time posting. My husband is trying to fix the shower, and we are suspecting the corrosion behind the wall pipe that connects to the shower. Every other area of the house has no water pressure issue except this one.
My husband is trying to remove retaining clip, but there is not enough space for him to do it.
Should we cut around the fiberglass since the ring that covers the tub faucet is big enough?
We have never cut through fiberglass before, and will use dremel for it.
Is there anything we need to careful about? I would not want him to be upset just in case we might cut something wrong doing so.

I wish I could help him but I have no idea and he is working so hard alone. Any comments will be helpful.

Thank you so much.
