Cross handle hansgrohe faucet I can't remove top piece
My faucet is leaking near the cross handle. Insturction with cartridge describes that the piece just below the cross handle has to be removed. I've tried a strap wrench, but I can't keep strap from slipping toward top of housing and thus can't torque suffeciently to remove housing. Any tips?

Cartridge faucets have only one moving part. The stem slides up and down to open and close the faucet and rotates to regulate the flow of hot and cold water. Any leaking requires replacement of the cartridge.
First, turn off the water. To remove the cartridge, you'll need to remove the handle. This project can be like working a puzzle. If you have the manufacturer's instruction sheet for the faucet, you're ahead of the game. Without it, look for a retainer clip at the rear of the faucet just below the handle. Or, you may have to remove a set screw or snap-in "hot-cold" button and a handle pin or screw. On some faucets the swing spout must come off first. The retainer clip may be hiding beneath the handle inside a lift-out tube. Some cartridge faucets use two retainer clips–one by the handle and another by the cartridge. Retainer clips can be pried out with a screwdriver.
Once the retainer clip is removed, the cartridge simply pulls out. Use pliers, as shown. Install the new cartridge by pushing it into place with the flat arrow, or other mark upward. If you use a lubricant on the cartridge, make sure it's silicone grease.
Most Hansgrohe faucets or handles have a plug in them. This does not come apart but in most cases you simply push the plug into the handle and once you have removed the hendle you can retrieve the plug from inside the handle or on top of the faucet.

Remove the handles. See if the chrome slip nuts holding the stems in are corroded. If they are, the cartridges may not be fully seated or the o -rings that seal around the cartridges may need to be replaced. If either of these is the case you can tell for sure by turning the stems to the on position with the handles removed and looking for water seeping around the cartridge. If none of the above is the cause then check to see if the aerator (screen on the spout) is loose or corroded sending a light spray back towards the faucet body that looks like a leak. If this is the case remove and clean the aerator, then reinstall it making sure not to cross thread it. If none of the above, replace the faucet. Be sure to call Delta first before replacing because they have a lifetime warranty and you just might get your faucet for free!
The 14010 faucet does not have any adjustment for handle tension. It uses a cartridge to control the on/off functions. If it is hard to turn on and off it may mean the cartridge has debris in it or has worn out over time. You may need to replace the cartridge. This should be part number 92730000. List is $48 and it is available through your local dealer or online dealer. If you need further help feel free to contact Hansgrohe Tech at 1-800-334-0455.
This is most likely a cartridge that has worn out and needs to be replaced. Most of the kitchen faucets use cartridge number 92730000. This is available through your local dealer or online dealer.

If the handle is hard to turn it is most commonly caused by water deposits in the handle or in the cartridge below. I would try removing the handle to ensure it turns freely when not installed on the faucet. If not you can clean it with CLR to remove the water deposits that are making it difficult to turn. If the handle turns freely when not installed you will need to remove the cartridge and inspect it to ensure it is not broken or damaged in any way. There could be debris in the cartrige that has either made it hard to turn or broken the ceramic disks. Our handles are easily removed by turning the bell shaped ecutcheon below the lever or cross handle. There are not set screws that hold them on. If you need further information feel free to call me at 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough.
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.
