Removing lever handle from Grohe Geneva Roman Tub Set

Posted by turbocto (My Page) on

We have a Grohe Geneva Roman tub set (25 506) and need to remove the lever handle (18 734). As best I can tell from the exploded diagrams shown in the Grohe documentation, there is supposed to be a screw (labelled "J") under the H/C button to hold the handle to the top of the cartridge. However, after unscrewing the button, I don't see any screw---just what appears to be a white annular disc divided into quadrants by grooves at the N, E, S, and W locations around the circumference. Through the center, I can see a brass fitting that I guess is the top of the cartridge. I've tried just lifting the handle, but, though it has a fair bit of play, it doesn't seem to pull off easily (and I didn't want to force it).

Does anyone on the forum know how to remove handles like these from a Grohe faucet or deck-mounted tub filler?

Thanks in advance.

Call Grohe tech support.

I called Grohe tech support. It turns out that they've updated the handles to use a torsion connector instead of a screw (because too many owners were damaging the unit with the screw connection). So the answer is that you simply lift up with a bit of force to remove the handle.
