I looked at it and there might be a press in cap with a screw underneath where the grohe label is. there also may be a set screw around the shoulder of the handle where an allen hex wrench fits to losen its clamp on the stem. also.......some handles just snap on and just pull off with some tugging and wiggling them just right.

How do I adjust water temperature on a Pegasus shower head?


Adjustment is usually on the valve assembly. Take off the big round trim ring and you will find the adjustment on the valve assembly or in the valve stem.

Screw end of cartridge is stripped. handle won't stay on


It sounds like the cartridge will need to be replaced. I would suggest you call around to some of your local plumbing supply houses and see if one stocks or has access to Grohe parts. A good parts man may be able to ID the part over the phone, but you will probably have to take the cartridge in so they can match it up. Stay away drom getting fit-all handles for it, as this is only a temporary fix. Replace the cartridge if possible. I hope this helps.
