Question about Plumbing
How do I reconnect the handle to the hose? It seems like there is a connector piece missing. If I just reconnnect it, its very difficult.
Solved my own problem with a little ingenuity. On closer look it became apparent that the threaded retaining ring at the end of the hose must have snapped quite securely back into the stem. So after a late night trip to the local hardware emporium to find a tool capable of exerting enough pressure from the inside of this part to tug it out, I bought a pair of needle nosed pliers. Eureka! Problem solved. The hose retaining ring pulled up immediately. It was easy to screw nozzle head and hose back together. And Bob should be everybody's uncle! (At the store I noticed that most brands of these single faucet pull up taps have the same stem to nozzle configuration. I think buyers should consider that this is the most used aspect of these types of taps and constant pulling out the hose to direct the spray, expecially if you also have double sinks; daily cleaning etc. might quite understandably uncrew the nozzle head from the hose over time ; it appears to be quite a short thread on this model 333 series.)

Your problem is: How do you reconnect the handle to the hose? It seems like there is a connector piece missing. If you just reconnnect it, its very difficult.
Is this the type of faucet with the sprayer handle as part of the faucet spout? If so, it just screws on.
Is this the type of faucet with the sprayer handle next to the faucet? If so, It's important that you didn't loose the tiny C clip. When you took it apart you had to unscrew the handle from the base and remove the C clip from the hose to remove the base. If you have all the parts just reverse the process. And yes it can be more dificult than it looks.
