Cannot Remove Kitchen Mixer Tap Spout

Postby Dimmy » Sun Oct 13, 2019 4:03 am

while ago I replaced the o rings in my kitchen mixer tap spout....simply by removing the grub screw at the back of the spout and removing it in seconds. BUT I tried to do the same job on a friends mixer tap which is leaking from the bottom of the spout where it meets the base. HOWEVER there is no grub screw and no shroud etc. The spout is quite wobbly anyway but I tried with a lot of upward force with the spout in EVERY position but it won't budge ...ARE some of these spouts made so as not to be removed which means a new tap?...many thanks
