I need a bit of advise, Hansgrohe are closed on the weekend and I need to uninstall my old tap and replace it with a new one. I installed this tap in the first place. But that was 6 years ago and I cannot remember if the collar turns clockwise or anti-clockwise to unscrew the collar on the tap under the sink. Also it doesn't help with the fact that space is limited and there is no room to move a spanner. I used a telescopic wrench which can undo left to right. I installed it originally. But that was 6 years ago and I cannot recall which way the collar.

Please look at the diagram, section 19, 18 isn't used as its a solid counter top I'm not sure whether it's counter clockwise or anti-clockwise. Maybe looking down is anti-clockwise but underneath the counter it is counter clockwise. Oh and another thing. It looks as though, the collar is the same for all their range of taps. I don't recall seeing screws in the collar...?

Also, does anybody know what size spanner would fit this. I have a small 22mm and it's just shy of this. So I'm estimating, about 25 - 26 possibly 27mm.
