All faucets have a hot and cold line input. The single handle units have a mixing valve within the handle. Aside from removing the water lines there is usually some type of connecting bolts for the base plate as well that will need to be removed prior to removing the faucet. Do not forget to turn the shut off valves off at the wall before you remove the water lines.

The designs of the Kitchen Sink Faucet mainly exhibit differences in its handles
and spouts. Differently curved spouts and handles diversify the range of
products. Some have long spouts and some are with short ones. The spouting of
water may also give different flow patterns with the external fixtures. The
handles are mainly in single or double.
Cartridge removal is a simple matter of exposing and pulling out the old cartridge. Before getting started, turn off both water valves underneath the sink and allow the water to run until the line is clear. Using a screwdriver, gently pry off the cap on the lever of the faucet handle to expose the cartridge. Remove the U-shaped retaining clip that holds the cartridge in place and pull the cartridge out. If dirt or residue makes removal difficult, use a Moen cartridge puller to assist you. A cartridge puller fits over the cartridge and gives you greater pulling power.
Soak the dirty cartridge in vinegar for four hours and replace.
If cleaning the cartridge does not work, call the Moen Helpline at 1-800-465-6636 or Customer Service at 1-800-465-6130 to order a free replacement. Locate the part number on the cover page of your instruction manual. If you no longer have the manual, look on the underside of the spout.
if memory serve's me,you will need to remove a stem extension,screw in center,and you may need a tool #103462 to remove cartridge.1'st stem ex't is red,(hot) blue (cold), remove, look down,white piece w/ 2 notch'es, this hold's cartridge down, ya might try needle nose plier's to remove,a little lube help's upon re assembly, carefull w/plastic thread's
start by making sure the valve that supplies hot water to the sink and dish washer is fully open. If there is low hot water pressure in any of the other kitchen/bathrooms, then trace the line to see where the pressure drops. If it is only in the kitchen, it should be an old valve, (causes restriction)Good Luck.
I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout
if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)
turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink remove the set screw and lift off the lever
at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place
temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking
if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install
If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink
once you have determined which it is (hot or cold) take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise
be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem
remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end
take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)
go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks
It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
Reconnect supply line.
Turn on angle stop and test
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
