You just sent us a RP51503 bonnet nut for a warranty issue. I cannot get the old one to break loose.

Any suggestions on how to loosen and remove the old bonnet nut?

Answer: 
Hi Matt, Thank you for your question. Mineral build up can make it difficult to unscrew the bonnet nut. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the bonnet nut. Allow the solution to soak in, the longer the better, to help break up the mineral deposits. This should allow you to more easily remove the RP51503 bonnet nut.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP22734 may have mineral deposits built up inside that will not allow it come off. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water and wrapping it around the bonnet nut. Let it soak overnight and then use may need to use a strap wrench to take off the nut.

Is this a left or right handed thread? To remove do I turn counter-clockwise or clockwise?

When I tried to loosen this I didn't get it to budge. Concerned that it might be threaded differently than I thought I tried to find out on the web. When facing the wall do I turn it counter-clock wise to remove?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet part # RP22734 should be removed by turning it counter-clockwise. It is possible that you may have hard water deposits built up underneath the bonnet. To loosen these, we recommned soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water. Wrap the soaked towel around the bonnet nut and let it sit overnight. It should loosen the mineral deposits.
