The hot water on my kitchen faucet recently started dripping. I haven't a clue what make or model it is, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to take it apart to get at the seat and springs. Can anybody help identify it or give my some hints on where I might find a model numbers, so I can find instructions to take it apart? Or, any suggestions on how to get it apart?

Instruction sheet

I'd include some actual instructions here, but it's spelled out in the linked sheet. Have a look at that.

  • The instructions suggest that I just need to rotate the hub in a counterclockwise direction. It's way too tight for me to do this by hand, at least not without a wrench or something. But I am afraid a wrench will damage the finish. Any hints? – zappa Nov 30 '16 at 22:31

    Have you tried to get a hand grip on the hub with a friction rubber gripper, such as one which is used to open jars? Failing that, there are 'strap' wrenches with a Kevlar reinforced rubber strap which should do the job without scratching the finish. – Jim Stewart Dec 1 '16 at 0:13
