Question about Plumbing
This shower diverter is approx 35 years old. It is the pull type mounted to the wall above the tub faucet. Is it able to be removed (without damaging tile) and is there replaceable washers in it?
How would we stop it from leaking (both behind the wall and dripping out from the pull knob?

If you are saying that water is still coming out of the tub spout while the shower is on that is not a big deal a rather normal. If it bothers you a lot then you will need to replace the tub spout as the diverter in the spout has gone bad or is going bad.
Now if you are saying that the shower is leaking behind the wall when the shower head is being used then the threaded joint at the shower head arm is leaking and will need to be undone and put new pipe dope on the threads and reinstall it or it may be just lose and if that is the case remove it and reinstall it anyway.
If the water is leaking behind the wall and the above is not the case you will need to get into the wall and see where the leak is coming from and take the necessary steps to fix it.
Hope this helps and good luck.
