Price-Pfister shower diverter on 3 valve system

Hi, Diverter valve won't divert all of water to shower head any more. Can I remove the diverter stem by just removing the packing nut and simply turning out while pulling on the stem? Or would I have to remove the bonnet also? The reason I ask is that in order to remove the bonnet, I will have to remove some ceramic tiles. Don't really want to if I can avoid it. I have a small jpeg (56kb) exploded parts diagram to attach here that would help understand my question but this is my first post here and for some reason I am not allowed to include attachments. How can I get permission to include attachments? Here is a link to the diagram.

Mine is the "01 Series Three-Handle Tub & Shower" in the diagrams.

You will have to remove the diverter bonnet to gain access to the stem assembly.

This will require removing tile.

I use a dremel tool with a mini-diamond blade to open up tile walls in small areas like your situation.

This will make it easier in the future as well.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm off to the hardware store to get that bit for my dremel tool.
