I have a faucet leaking in my bathroom. It’s leaking from the hot water side. The problem is I can’t find a way to take off the handles on the faucet. The handles are all smooth and one piece. There is nothing to pry off. No small set screws in the back.

I think it’s a Delta model but I’m not sure. Any ideas?

I have similar faucets and to access the cartridge unscrew the base counterclockwise. The base and the handle will come off as one unit.

  • "Obviously". :) I have always wondered how you design something like that, that has to screw down tightly, but also has to align perfectly with the shape of the things around it, without a set screw. It's magic?

From the Delta Flynn faucet manual:

Remove handles by hand turning handle base counterclockwise.
