Dismantling B&Q Mixer Tap to Fix Leak

Postby Pete1979 » Tue Apr 28, 2020 12:06 pm

I have a 4 year old B&Q (Cooke & Lewis) mixer tap.

There is a small leak from the middle of the tap. I'm quite handy and thought it was probably a washer, so I attempted to dismantle it to investigate.

However I can't remove the last moving, circular part (see pics). And this is the part that is actually leaking. It doesn't appear to unscrew. I removed the grub screw behind.

Any ideas on how to remove this and fix the leak?
