Are you talking about O ring replacement on ceramic tap inserts? If ceramic fittings the replacement of these is the only real way of repair.
it has like a blue mesh attachment ,nothing like the cold side. i have not really studied it but should it have a washer same as the cold side

could the catridge insert be causing the problem, or is it more likely the cold side
Don't suppose their are any isolator valves below the sink to isolate the supply pipes one at a time to identify which one is faulty?
i will take a couple of pics tomorrow its at my mates house thanks for your help
