I need to replace the washer on my cold tap but am unable to remove the shroud to gain access to the washer. There doesn't appear to be a grub screw or anything else that will let me remove the shroud/cover.

See picture below for tap type. icon_confused.gif Login to view this image Login to view this image Login to view this image

If it doesn't unscrew as seco says above, then use a knife edge to prise the top off.Then you'll see the Screw beneath.

Not at all Tim. Advice coming from someone who knows the product can be the best advice. icon_wink.gif
