Hi, Please could you advise me on disassembling a bathroom sink mixer tap. I've removed the cover/grub screw and with some "persuasion" got off the (stuck/corroded) top uni-lever/handle and following some WD40 action and patience also the collar/shroud to reveal what you see in my pix. From YouTube videos, I was expecting to see something I could put a regular spanner off to release the cartridge but of course it wouldn't be that simple ;-). What tool/technique do I need to unscrew this next bit to release the cartridge I presume is being held in by it. THANK YOU for any advice you can give me. Cheers, DIYTryer
Thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly. I do take your point about replacing the whole thing but on the subject of the correct spanner tool to shift this if I wanted to persist - is there something you have in mind - what's it called please?
