Removing Tap Cartridge to Repair Leaking Kitchen Tap

Postby rez186 » Fri Jan 13, 2017 1:13 pm

Please could anyone provide some advice on this ?

I need to repair a kitchen leaking tap and replace the ceramic disc...however when I open the tap cover, I see that I don't have good access to unscrew the cartridge out ! Please have a look at the photo.

How/what tool should I use to remove the cartridge housing given that my spanner or other tool cannot fit in in that space ?!

Thank you in advance.
