Second - Disassemble the Faucet: The same basic principals apply to all faucet types when starting to take a faucet apart for repair or replacement. Keep all parts and layout in the order you take them apart. This will help you both put the faucet back together and identify the parts to be replaced. See below for specific variations in faucet dis-assembly.
To disassemble unscrew the bonnet from the faucet, using slip-joint pliers. Remove the valve stem, keeping in mind this has reverse threads, so unscrew it by turning it clockwise. Older compression faucets may have corroded handles that can be difficult to remove. Most hardware stores and rental centers have a specialty tool called a Handle Puller which makes the job easier.
The faucets with detachable spray wands have become extremely popular during the last decades. But there is always some doubt whether the pull-out wand will have a snug enough fit into its dock. If the wand does not sit very well, the faucet loses a lot. It can be beautifully designed, but if the spray head does not sit where it should, the whole faucet will look cheap and inferior. That is why the leading manufacturers of kitchen faucets have done their best to secure the wand firmly in its place.
