It depends on the type of valve assembly. Some have a plastic cover that can be removed to reveal a screw. Once the screw is removed, the handle can be pulled off. At that point, the valve stem is the part sticking out. Older style valves have a smaller nut near the end of the valve stem. That nut compresses the packing material that keeps water from running out of the stem. The stem itself is threaded into the valve assembly. You should be able to identify it by the hex-head. It is often difficult to break loose, but it will come out if you just turn it hard enough. As you remove it you may need to turn the handle a little to get it out of the valve assembly. They're all different. This is one of those situations where you should be careful if you don't know what you're doing. Make sure the water is turned off first and try to get an idea of what you're opening up. As already indicated, many of the valve assemblies are different. For example, if it's one of the newer type the above directions don't mean anything.
