Removed 6 screws to access the top left area where the water hose brings water into the tub. Photographed the area before disassembling the injector valve and nozzle. Replaced the two parts with the new parts and reassembled. The only real problem was in getting the plastic nozzle properly placed inside the rubber valve. The nozzle was difficult to insert deeply enough to properly position the rubber sleeve on the valve. After a few minutes of working with it and adding some lubricant, and after worrying I would bend or break the plastic nozzle, I got it right. So far, there's been no further leakage.
