I'm trying to disassemble my kitchen sink tap to change the washer. How do I do that with this model? I can't find any cap I can pop to show the screw underneath it.

    Try unscrewing the handles, including their chrome shafts. They may act as set screws that, when removed, allow you to take apart the cross arms.

    I wouldn't bet on that. My bath taps don't come off that way. I'd be more inclined to suspect the conical collars. Might need a 'jam jar opener' with a rubber strap to avoid damage. Assume anti-clockwise from the handle end [which means they'll feel like they turn opposite ways]. But before you do anything, double-check there isn't a simple locking screw out of sight round the back. Get a mirror to check. It might end up being both, handles come off frees up the end studs, then the cones, then you'll find the actual functional nut underneath.

    Do you have any brand info? That might help someone (like you) find instructions for it.

    @Tetsujin spot on! There is a locking screw opposite the handle. Dec 8, 2021 at 18:48

Based on the image here it looks like there are some set screws on the underside of the handle that should be able to be loosened with a small hex wrench.
