Unable to Undo Bathroom Basin Cold Tap Valve?

Postby phil9999 » Wed Aug 24, 2016 3:04 pm

Can anybody gives me some tips on undoing the valve on my bathroom sink cold tap.
Water just drips only a little so I need to undo the valve to put it back on its thread travel.

Tried using a adjustable spanner but wont budge and worried about forcing it as entire tap unit wants to turn around as well. sprayed it with my wd 40 but wont undo. tried also some adjustable grips but they slipped and rounded it a little.
Please help and thanks for any advice given, cheers.
Kind Regards,
