diassambling this faucet


one of my HW sink faucets is leaking.
digging in to see what needs replacing I am stumped at Step 2 - getting access to the guts of the spindle.

the grey plastic piece seems to have flats on it which would suggest that I would use a wrench to unscrew and remove it to pull out the brass post and whatever is below it and has failed. (Cartridge? O-rings? Packing? Rubber washer?)

but it doesn't budge. or at least not without the entire fixture spinning on the sink deck.

does this look familiar to anyone?

many thanks

Peter

That appears to have a U shaped clip you could remove to remove the washer and escutcheon???

Ahhah. Bingo. correct.
Though what next? That grey piece still doesnt budge.
Should i have to remove the nut underneath and remove the entire assembly from above?

It does look like that would be the next step, I don't know what you do if it won't move.

Looking at the pic, to me it looks like a 6 sided valve nut. Try using big channel lock or big cresent wrench see if it will unscrew. Use some wd 40 or pb blaster to help with the sediment.
