single lever cold water faucet won't turn


I have a single lever cold water faucet in my tub that won't turn. It seems to have seized. I have to really force it to get any water. Hot water lever turns fine. Any thoughts on what I need to do?

No model. no make, no picture, looks like your going to have to shut off the water and remove the handle to take it apart to find the trouble.

a picture is worth 1000 words or in your case an answer to your question..
