shower assembly

Hello, hope someone can shed some light. Was changing out shower hose and new handheld and thought this would be no big deal. In the top of the shower valve where hose connects is a funny shaped black rubber washer and a white plastic partitioned piece and I can't seem to see how these were installed originally. Any advice will be great. Jeff

Hi Rock

I’ll give this a try as I do not know on your year exactly what it there. In these cases a picture really, really, really helps. You may have the exact same thing as my 2004, OR not.

Here goes, what I “think” you are looking at is:

The faucet for the shower is a 2 knob on off. Does it look like the one in this pic of mine?

If it is that faucet, the faucet has a plastic vented fitting on the top of it where the water comes out. The vent acts as a vacuum breaker/drain when you turn the water off that air can get in at the hose connection and allow a quantity of water to drain out of the hose.

The assembly is as follows:

- Male threaded white plastic fitting on top of the faucet

- Black washer sits on top of the white plastic fitting on top of the faucet.

- The hose has a free spinning collar (nut) and inside the end of the hose is a crimped on flat faced end that seats against the black washer.

- The hose collar then screws on the threaded fitting sticking up out of the faucet.

The black washer when new has a very slight taper to the outside of it. Over time it may squish into a strange shape OD and get flattened more. It is also a special size so try not to loose it. I did and had one heck of a time buying some replacements.

Hope this helps and is your shower setup.
