Rated 5 out of 5 by from complete seal kit My shower faucet started to leak so I went to the hardware store to match them up. All the stores only had universal seals that might work and I wasn't going to play that game. I ordered your kit that fit my faucet and it came complete with seals springs and a new mounting plate. I will defintly use your services again.

Does this adapter fit a pre 2006 valve? I purchased a new BN trim with valve that has this adapter but it didn't seem to fit. Can you put new trim on an old 17000 valve?

Asked by: Andy65
Hi, Andy65! Thank you for your question. The Delta RP28603 seal kit will be the correct part for the pre 2006 1700 series faucet. A new Monitor 17 series trim kit will fit an older 1700 series valve. The original cartridge, RP32104, will need to be used instead of the cartridge that is included with the new trim kit. Best Regards, Rosanna

I have Single Handle Delta Monitor Series 18

I purchased a RP 46463 Cartridges replacement Delta Genuine Parts. The adapter assembly that is in the old shower has a screw that holds it in place. The adapter in the RP 46463 has a new adapter but no screw hole to attach the assembly. I replaced the cartridge without putting the adapter assembly in because there was not a screw hold. The faucet still leaks. Any suggestions ?
Asked by: Buddy
Hi Buddy, Thank you for your question. You will still need to install the cartridge adapter. The screw was removed as it is not needed to hold the adapter in place and would cause issues if not threaded in completely. Thanks, Dave

how to install part number rp46073

Asked by: John LeN
Hi, John LeN! Thank you for your question. To install the RP46073 adapter assembly, first shut off the water to the shower unit. Remove the handle assembly and unscrew the bonnet nut. Pull the valve cartridge assembly. Unscrew the older adapter out with a philip's screw driver. Reinstall the new adapter into the valve body. Reinstall all parts. If you should need further assistance, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST.

I'm converting a 14 series to a 17 series. Is this the part I need?

Asked by: Russ
Hi Russ, Thank you for your question. The RP46073 will not convert your 14 series to a 17 series. If your 14 series is newer than February 2006 the rough in should be the R10000 multichoice universal rough. To convert to a 17 series you will only need to order a new 17 series trim which will include the new cartridge to make the transition. If your existing faucet is older than February 2006, the entire faucet trim and rough will have to be changed. Thanks, Dave

Can I get some written instructions on how to install this adapter? thanks Irene

Asked by: Irene
Hi Irene, Thank you for your question. To install the adapter, please be sure to turn off the hot and cold water supply to the home and turn the faucet on to relieve any pressure. Next, pop off the temperature dial cover and remove the Phillips head screw. Note the position of the Rotational Limit Stop (RLS), then remove the RLS, the handle assembly, and the sleeve. Unscrew the bonnet nut (strap wrench is recommended if it does not come off by hand), and pull out the cartridge. Remove the adapter and install the new one. The existing adapter may have a small screw holding it in place, but newer versions do not use a screw.

Cartridge RP46463 the grey part has cracked. Can I purchase just the grey part ? I don't need new cartridge.

Asked by: Glacier
Hi Glacier, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the upper grey portion of the cartridge is not available as a separate item. The entire RP46463 cartridge will have to be replaced. Thanks, Dave
