Hi If you have problems with an Select then it's best just to replace the cartridge, however it is probably worth stripping the cartridge out and checking that the inlet filters are clean, before buying a new cartridge.
When the cartridge is out give the pipe work a flush out.
This will take two!
If your valve is recessed pack an old poly bag round the valve to divert the water into your Bath / shower tray then turn the hot and cold valves on one at a time and allow the water to flush through for about 15>20 seconds.
The person who is helping you should watch that the water is not going anywhere that is going to do any damage also they should watch that the amount of water coming from the hot and cold they should be roughly the same. Turn off hot and cold water supply Pull front temperature knob off The rest of the knob assy. just unclips Remove 4 screws that hold cartridge into body Pull old cartridge forward shouldn't be too tight Set new cartridge for High/Low pressure (instructions with cartridge) Slip new cartridge into place remember to check that the new seals are all in place (and don't drop out as you push back) Tighten screws be careful not to over tighten Refit knobs. Turn on water and test. (Occasionally you will have to reset the cartridge temperature, instructions with cartridge) Easy peasy!!!! Cartridge Mira 903.33 This cartridge supersedes the previous high and low pressure versions
