Problem with bathtub diverter

Whenever we try to divert the water from the bath to the shower the diverter is very difficult to pull up and we always have water coming from the tub faucet whenever we shower. The diverter is on the tub faucet. I think I need to replace the diverter but I can't get the faucet off. Any thoughts? I am a complete novice who just likes to try and do things myself. Is this something I can do myself?
Thanks for any help!

Look under the spout. If there is a slot near where the spout meets the tub wall, there is an allen screw to loosen and then remove the spout. It may still be a little stiff as there are "O" rings that seal it. If no slot, the spout screws on. Hold it close to the tub and turn counter-clockwise with a wrench. Good luck.

I found the slot under the spout but I can't see where the allen screw is. All I see is a pipe in the spout. Any ideas???
