I'm trying to take apart a leaky bathroom faucet. I've isolated the leak to the cold valve, but I cannot figure out how to disassemble the faucet. I've watched several helpful videos and read through some helpful questions, but I've got an older faucet and they don't apply. Here's a pic:
So far the things I have tried are:
- I've taken the screw out of the top, but that does not seem to loosen anything
- I've screwed the short metal rod from the handle back in the side, and used that as leverage to yank and twist, but that doesn't help me pull the top off
- I've rotated the tap fully clockwise (the direction that turns the water on) several full turns around, and it does not appear to be loosening
- I've screwed the short metal rod from the handle into the tap and used a crowbar to hit the tap upwards, but it does not move up
I don't see any other places/parts/screws I could use to disassemble this. How do I take this apart? Thanks.
Edit: I added two more steps I've tried to remove the tap
