Leaking bathtub tap

The hot water tap on my bathtub leaks. How do I go about fixing this thing?

If it's a dual handle faucet, it probably is a compression type that just needs the washer on the end of the valve stem replaced.
Turn off the cold water supply to the water heater (cuts off hot water only), remove the faucet handles, estuchion if one, and unscrew the valve retaining cap counter-clockwise.
Replace the rubber washer on the end of the stem and any o-ring that may be on the valve.
Good Luck!
