Angry Leaking Faucet

My bathtub faucet leaks a steady small stream of cold water. Turning the handles all the way doesn't stop it. What do I need to do. I have shut the water off to the cold tap.

Fairly common problem. You most likely need to replace the value seat(s) and washers. I usually remove them and take them with me to the hardware store to get the right replacement parts. You will need a hex (allen) wrench to get them out. Be gentle putting the new ones in. You don't want to bend or strip them...
