To disassemble unscrew the setscrew and pull off handle. Tighten the plastic adjusting ring inside the cap by turning it with a special flat adjusting tool-or fit tow screwdrivers into the slots and cross their blades to turn the ring. If your ball-style faucet with this type of cap is leaking from the spout, first try tightening the cap with channel pliers. Still leaking? Disassemble and replace worn/broken parts. Often you need to lift out the ball and replace the rubber seats and springs on both sides of the valve. If the faucet leaks around the spout, replace worn o-rings. Replace rotating ball only if clearly worn.
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.
Are you trying for a vintage antique look, a sleek contemporary look, Old World rustic or something elegant and traditional? Nickel or pewter faucets are perfect for the traditional kitchen, copper or bronze are great for Old World and country style kitchens, and chrome or stainless steel faucets have a very contemporary look.
