My bathtub/shower faucet has developed a loud, annoying screech when the temperature is above medium. How can this be fixed?

I can't find a model number, but it appears to be a Delta model 635 or 636. Googling suggests that this problem can be solved by replacing a gasket, but I don't immediately see which part
of the faucet should be replaced. The Maintenance and Installation Guide
doesn't seem to cover this problem either. Any suggestions for what needs to be done?
Also, is this a suitable DIY project (I'm reasonably handy and have a decent set of tools, but haven't worked on plumbing before, just electronics and occasionally my car) or do I need to call in a pro?
