I need to change a washer on a leaking tap in my shower, but I can't figure out how to get the tap out to change it.
I can unscrew the base of the tap from the wall and get it out from the wall a little way and I can see where I would need to get a spanner/wrench onto the brass piece underneath to turn it, but I don't have a tool that can reach into the small gap and I can't see a way to actually take the tap head off as there is no screw or allen key piece in it.
Can anyone help me as to how I should go about this?
I've also attached some photos so you can see what I mean.

the cross handle comes off first there is a small nut retaining it to the spindle, you need a special wrench with 2 teeth. Then remove the cover, unscrew the tap body and change the washer, good luck

look at this link, the spanner is on the left and the nut looks like one in the top row of the photo, under the tap handle, you remove it from behind, good luck
