Monobloc Mixer Tap With Almost no Water Flow?

Postby paulzip » Sun Aug 04, 2019 5:42 pm

I have one of these single lever monobloc sink mixer taps that has suddenly stopped functioning.

It has almost no water flow - just a trickle regardless if set to hot / cold or mixed. I don't believe there's a problem with the water feed, so I suspect it's an issue inside the tap. I'm not entirely sure how to take the tap apart or what the problem might be, although I can unscrew a cover just below where the lever ball pivots. I'm willing to have a go at fixing it, if I was given some advice on how to dismantle the tap and what to clean or replace.

Can any experts out there suggest what the problem might be and how to fix it?

Many thanks for your time.
