pull it out as far as you need. You will not hurt anything just dont try to wash the car its not that long
I have my spout in the middle and I pull out all I need to clean out both sidees it works just fine
How long have you had this? is everythign tight? check underneath the sink to ensure all connections are tight. The spout may have came loose, and it may not be able to be fixed, may need to be replaced.
if you remove the actual drain mechanism you will see where the drain stopper rod goes into.It`s a hole that works on a lever. You need both hands to insert rod into and then use the other hand to find the right height position to anchor the drain stopper. You insert it from behind and then tighten the drain stopper on the drain pipe. Take your time this sounds complicated but it is quite easy. When you have it lined up you can check the operation of the rod by going up and down.And see if it holds water and then see if it drains the water..
One of two things can be wrong.The first is the drain plug itself has become disengaged with the plunger inside the drain line. You can check this by pulling up on the drain stopper itself, if it comes all the way out then all you need to do is to reinsert it and give it a little twist to get it reseated on the plunger hook. The other may be the drain handle on the top of the faucet may be disconnected from the rod. Open up the doors underneath the sink and inspect it. The rod should go down and the plunger handle should connect to the rod via a bent metal clip. Ensure it is in the correct position to activate the handle in the drain pipe when the top is pulled up.
Faucets are fastened with nut(s) under the sink.
-Turn off and disconnect the water supply hose from the faucet.
-If this is a faucet with a sprayer you will need to disconnect the sprayer hose from the faucet as well.
-If this is a bathroom sink you will have to disconnect the drain stopper assembly, this should be self-explain when you look at it.
-Remove the nuts or nut holding the faucet in place. This can be a difficult task to get a wrech or pliers on the nut(s). If you are having difficulty you may need to acquire a tool called a "basin wrench" most hardware stores carry them ask for it, if the person knows his department he will take you right to it. They arn't terribly exspensive.
Make sure that the compression nut is not too tight where it could bind up the plunger rod. I'm sure you have probably gotten up under to see if it is hitting anything. Also, make sure that the lift rod is adjusted correctly. I am leaning more towards the unit being bound up some how.
