faucet bulbMy widespread Harden faucet has set screw that removes the handle but the white base bulb will not come off. I can turn the bulb but there is a metal rim which extends inside the bulb and prevents it from being pulled up. When I turn the bulb, the metal above the bulb does not turn so somehow I need to get that out. Faucet is leaking and I need to replace the cartridge.

  • Try to grasp the chrome collar with a pair of vice grips, (carefully so you don't scratch the surface) and urn it counterclockwise. It should come off. – JACK Oct 13 at 1:20
  • Thank you Jack!! I was able to get it off with vice grips although I didn't manage the "don't scratch it part"- kind of hard to grasp it... Anyway, on to the next part, replacing the cartridge. I've found lots of videos on that so I think I can do it. – C Campbell Oct 13 at 1:45
