Garda 3521 tap..hot tap leaks (slowly) via spindle. No dripping tap but water escaping via body of valve when hot water is "on"/flowing..moreso if cold tap also opened when hot tap is open i.e. pressure related.

Have had said ceramic valve out of tap housing but no replacement to hand so reluctant to remove circlip on the valve to disassemble it.

Is it generally possible to repair a leak down the spindle in this sort of valve?..and if so how? Have looked on net but most help is re knackered/calc'd up ceramic discs i.e. with leaking tap at spout.
Thanks for reading.

Leaks via the spindle indicate a damaged O ring within.....pretty difficult to obtain, I think.
Have you looked at Lunns.net for possible replacements?
