Well, this is generic for fixing a Price Pfister ceramic disc valve labatory faucet. On the top of the handle, there is usually a screw cover. Pry it off. Then insert a phillips screwdriver or allen wrench, depending on model and remove. Then remove the handle. At this time, make sure the water is shut off to the faucet. You'll need a socket or wrench to remove the cartridge. On many, the size is 3/4. Loosen all the way, then pull out the cartridge and replace. They are usually between 10-30$/cartridge. Insert new cartridge, tighten (but dont overtighten or you will kill the gasket), then replace the handle and turn on water. Check for leaks.

Unscrew top button. Using a phillips screw driver remove handle retaining screw and work off handle. If it leaks under the handle you need to unscrew the top cap, use a strap wrench to hold the body and tighten the brass retainer ring with an adjustable wrench. Or remove the ring to replace the cartridge.
If you will look .....first thing would be a good idea to turn water cufoffs under the counter to off position....then remove handle,to do this there should be a set screw (hexagonal screw) on the bottom side of handle lever a heagonal wrench will be needed to remove handle...... Now that you have the handle off you can turn the cold side of the cutoff on or the hot side to find out which one is leaking hot or cold .......if indeed it is a washer ( rubber cup) that is leaking.......hope this helps...
I would try replacing the cartridge. Handle has a set screw (probably an allen head) There should be a retaining nut holding the cartridge in. Unscrew it and pull the old cartridge out. You might have to pull pretty hard.
On the inside stems...appear to be decorative hardware covers; gently pop them off and find a philips screw underneath. Remove the screws and handles should come off. Just as a caution, you may want to turn the water valve under the sink OFF before you make this attempt.
On the under side of the handle is a plastic plug its either red and blue or its a logo about 1/4" dia., remove that and there is a set screw that attaches the handle. Loosen that screw just enough to pull the handle off. Then you can disassemble the faucet for repairs. Price Pfisters have a lifetime warranty, if the cartridge is bad you should contact them for a replacement part.
Your problem is: Pull out Price Pfister valve screw in the handle has separated from the valve. How do you pop the chrome cover to access the small screw to reattach to the valve? You don't want to just pry it off.
If you really don't want to pry it off then ask someone else to do it. That's all there is to it. Just be carefull not to scratch the chrome. From now on any time the handle feels loose retighten before it falls off and save yourself some grief. You'll find it's really easy.
