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.

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. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

Are there instructions for replacing part RP46073 for the 17 series. 

Asked by: Debbie
Thank you for your question, Debbie! To install the adapter, first be sure to turn off the hot and cold water supply to the home, then 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), then 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. https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/76652%20Rev%20G.pdf Best regards, Edward

Does the rp46463 replacement cartridge include the rp46073 adapter assembly? If not, is it needed?

Asked by: Billy
Thank you for your question, Billy! The RP46073 adapter assembly is included with the RP46463 cartridge. In most cases, a drip can be resolved by replacing the adapter assembly. Best regards, Jon

I have a delta shower 13/14 series, after 2006 so gray cartridge. The adapter no long is available, will the Adapter kit Multichoice for 17 series RP46073 work or I do I need to replace the cartridge or other parts

Asked by: llewellin
Thank you for your question, llewellin! The Rp46073 adapter is the correct part for a current Multichoice 17 series cartridge Rp46463 which has a grey cap. The older 1700 series cartridge with a white cap includes all parts needed for installation. Best regards, Edward

We are installing a new 17 Series shower head and handle will this item allow us to connect to the 14 Series installed cartridge?

Asked by: don
Hi Don, Thank you for your question. If your original shower was installed after September 2006, you should have a MulitChoice valve, which will allow you to install any current trim kit. Units made prior to this time frame will not allow you to change the series of trim. Older units have a cartridge with a white top, newer models have a gray top. Best regards, Jon

There are screws in the diagram... but not on the item image

The image above shows two pieces. The diagram and clickable pdf shows washers and screws. Do the washer and screws come with this piece, that's all I really need.
Asked by: Nick
Hi Nick, Thank you for your question! The rp46073 adapter was redesigned. It originally has a screw in the center to tight down to the older valve body. The valves n longer have a hole so the adapter was redesigned. Best regards, Brandis

Why does a new RP46073 not have screw hole in it? Is it not needed?

Asked by: Lew
Hi Lew, Thank you for your question. The new RP46073 does not require that the adaper be screwed into the valve body. If not installed properly the screw on the older model would damage the cartridge. Thanks, Dave
