Is it possible the seat or spring parts needs to be replaced.
If yes how do I replace the seat and/or spring?
Hi R Tucker, Thank you for your question. The seats and springs most likely need to be changed as well to stop the leak. They are located in the valve body directly below the stem assembly. The spring goes in first, tapered side up, larger side down. Then the seat caps off the top of the spring creating a seal with the bottom of the stem assembly.
You will have to remove the handle, bonnet nut, and stem assembly to access the seats and springs.
