Old faucet / Leak around handle
I have an old faucet that leaks from the top of the left / hot-water handle. I'm pretty much a novice with these things, but I'm trying to remove the handle to see if there's a washer or o-ring that needs replacing.
The problem is: I can't remove the handle. I've loosened it by unscrewing it, counter-clockwise, with vise grips: It loosened, but just spins after a point; it doesn't come off. There don't seem to be any external screws, either ...
Here's a picture:
Am I approaching this the right way?
If so, what am I missing?
Thanks so much,
There is usually a set hex screw you need to remove to get the handle off. Then the bell shaped dome under it unscrews. You should see a nut, that will, when loosened, allow you to lift off the faucet stem. You will probably have a cartridge there to replace. An exact model # will be required to get the correct cartridge as they will look very similiar by picture.
