    Hi all,

    I have a dripping tap which I’m wanting to replace the washer on.

    I’m struggling to get the tap apart and wondering if anyone else has had issues with taps of this type before.

    I removed the cap and what I believe to be the grub screw but the tap head will not seemingly come off.

    Is there another element to this or is it a case of being more forceful with the tap head to remove it?

    Pictures included.

    Many thanks!

    No washer to replace . If tap drips when " off" ,you need a new cartridge or a new tap.
    The handle is just held on with the grub screw ,and can be difficult to remove as limescale tends to grip it.

    Super. Thank you.

    A bit (a lot) of force managed to remove it.
