Dripping kitchen tap but is this model serviceable?

Hello, this kitchen tap appears to have no grub screw to release the handles. It is dripping and I wanted to inspect/replace the cartridges. Is this model no -serviceable?

Hi sciowes,
There should be a fixing screw under the blanking plug in the end of each head work handle.

Thanks Stoneyboy. I’ve removed the blanking plates and the screws at the ends, but the handles don’t come off. Are they then supposed to slide or screw off?

Hi sclowes,
They are fitted on a splined shaft - should slide off with a bit of encouragement!
