The picture is too big to upload but I’ve got a C spout monobloc kitchen tap with lever controls which is making a lot of noise and I think I’ve established that I need to change the washers. However, after undoing the little screw at the end of the levers, I just can’t take the casing off to access the washers. Is it just a case of yanking hard? The levers definitely don’t unscrew. Any advice would be very gratefully accepted. Thanks in advance.
Hi adaldan If you taps are 1/4 turn you cannot replace washers because there are none - you will find ceramic cartridges. The tap heads will be fitted on a splined shaft and with corrosion can be difficult to remove - a straight pull is needed. Regards S
