I want to change the heads of these sink basin taps (see attached photo) but unable to remove by hand to undo the screw.
One of them is damaged and cracked behind.

How can I do this and where can I get replacement tap heads only please for this tap?

Thanks in advance for any help please
Thank you

I think so but unable to turn it ?
Want to replace tap head covers only as they are cracked and damaged behind
Managed to unscrew one of the tap heads but the other tap head won't unscrew. Tried grips but not turning any ideas please ?

Still can't get top of tap cover to unscrew even with grips and a rubber band
Any tips please can't replace one tap head and not the other ?
Try wrapping in kitchen towel and soaking with kitchen descaler or vinegar leave overnight.
As you are replacing them anyway just ram a screwdriver into the gap and break them off (assuming they are plastic).
Just want to unscrew the top of the tap off but won't budge unlike the other one
If you are replacing the heads and the working part (tap reviver set) just grip the head with grips and turn the whole thing off complete.
