changing leaky bath tub fixtures

I need help with the removal of the stem. I don't want to break it off, but I can not get the nut to turn. What should I do?

You can soak it with WD-40 or other solvent to help loosen it.
If you can get a larger wrench or a pair of channel-lock pliers on the stem cap for leverage, you should be able to turn it out counter-clockwise.
Good Luck!
