Question about Plumbing
The faucet is leaking, I checked every connection on the sink and found no leaks except that water is dripping from the faucet body, but only when I turn the faucet on. My intent is to dissamble the fauct and find the leaking seal. However, when I tried to remove the handle, I could not. Based on the parts diagram in the owners manual, it appears that if the 3mm hex screw and nylon fitting on the handle are removed it will come off the faucet body. However, I removeed the screws and the handle will not come off. Please advise.
I soaked the connection between the handle and the valve body in a penetrating oil for several hours and eventually used more force than I hoped to use to remove the handle. Once the handle and end cap (part 09 209) were removed, I could see that the valve assembly (part 46 048) was loose which caused water to leak from the seals (part 46 209) between the valve assembly and faucet body. So I tighted the screws that hold the valve assembly to the faucet body and the leaked stopped.

We had a similar problem. Water leaking from the housing unit. Connections were fine. I disassembled the handle and got to the cartridge. Try tightening the 2 large screws before taking it apart further as reassembly is a bit of a hassle. This worked for me.
