Please help me to identify this shower mixing valve

My shower is only giving me luke warm water and I think this mixing valve needs some sort of adjustment but I am having trouble identifying what brand valve it is and how to make the adjustment?

The top valves are shut offs and the mixing valve is in the center on the bottom. I figure these valves are about 20 years old.

I could be completely off, but the first thing that popped into my head was 'Grohe'. You can call them at 800-444-7643.

I wasn't able to find anything with google, but lately they seem to ignore the words I put in the search box.

I just picked up on what steve said, followed the lead and looked at Grohe. Does it look like this? Seems like it looks something like this:

Yeah it does kinda look like the Grohe, I am going to pursue this and see where it leads me. Thanks Steve and ZoesDad!

Still Struggling to expose the Valve and ideas?

The valve covering seems to be made of plastic and don't want to break anything. Anyone have any ideas on how to remove the plastic temperature section to expose the mixing valve itself?

Once you've identified the mixer, you'll be able to get an exploded diagram from the mfg.
