'99 Hansgrohe Aktiva Family Set. All heads & controls are leaking

I would like to tighten up the control knobs and heads, but I'm not sure how to remove them. Do they unscrew or pop them off? Also, the temperature control knob is loose, but I'm not sure how to remove that either.
Thank you.

The temp control knobs have little plastic tabs over the hot and cold handles. To remove them take a flat blade screw driver( small with sharp head) or a small pen knife( cover drain with a wash cloth
and pop the tabs off

Take a medium size phillips screw driver and tighten the screw

Put tab back o and you are done

If they work loos again remov e tabs, screws put loctite ( You can get a small tube for m ace or hd) screw threads and tighten

Temp control knob either has same tab or has a hex type of set screw or has a large lock nut

use a channel lock pliars over nut ( protect chrome finish by putting washcloth over then put wrench over cloth

You mentioned heads I am assuming shower head you need to use an adjuatible wrench to turn the nut (at head) and a vice rip or chanel locks over washcloth around the eustaceon ( chrome pipe coming out of wall

If you have teflon tape put that on the threads of showr head and tighten

Best of luck to you!

Is it the whole tap or just the knob/lever?

Whole tap, there is a nut underneath that needs tightening. Don't over tighten it.

Just the knob or lever that you turn to turn on and off? You will find a small screw at the rear. It is a set screw, so it doesn't have a head, it just sits in a hole. Usually a hex key to tighten it. The hole is often filled with gunk so clean it first with an old toothbrush. The set screw is often sticky so undo it I turn before you tighten, lift the knob off, screw the screw in until you see it coming out of the inside to clean the threads. Unscrew the screw back out, replace the knob and tighten it.

How to replace hansgrohe M2 cartridge

First you will need to tighten the set screw all the way back in. The use your 4mm hex wrench to turn the screw 4 complete turns counter clockwise. Then remove your hex wrench and the handle should come off. There will be a dome shaped cover with blue and red indicator marks. This will simply pull off the cartridge nut. It is held on by o-ring tension only. Once removed you will see the large hex head of the cartridge retainer nut. Loosen this nut and the nut and cartridge will come out of the faucet. Don't be alarmed if your new cartridge is smaller than your old one. There has been a design change in the cartridge so it will fit smaller bodied faucets but will still replace the older thicker cartidge. If you need any further information feel free to give me a call at Hansgrohe. 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough. I'd be glad to help.
