Removing the lower temp control cap
The lower cap snaps on - how do you remove it?
Hello there, PMF!
Thank you for your question. To remove the temperatue knob cover on the Delta T27859 17 series faucet model, you will need to use your fingers grip the edges of the round portion of the cap and then lift up from the bottom to the top to remove. Please see page 6 module 4 of the below Maintenance/Installation link, for the directions and diagrams.

Diverter not working
Just finished installation and for some reason the diverter isn't functioning correctly.
When I turn it turn it to the 3rd position the water flow from both the handheld and the shower head shuts off. We installed our handheld to go from the top right port (plugged the top left). Now that I'm thinking about it that seems to be the issue.
Also, the temperature control is somewhat acting as a diverter and I am getting a lot of noise from the pipes.
Can I simply get a six way diverter to utilize the top right port? Or even better rotate the diverter cartridge 180 degrees? Or do I have a bigger problem at hand? Thanks!
Thank you for your question, Nick. For a 3-Setting Diverter, the right port of the valve must be capped. The diverter cartridge cannot be rotated to allow flow to the right port. However, you may install a 6-Setting RP51919 cartridge in order to use the right port. Note that there will be non-functioning and redundant settings and the handle will not align with the position markings on the escutcheon plate.
