Question about Plumbing
I am unable to pull the outer chrome plated handle of the faucet hot water cutoff (06890630 part no.) from the brass adapter (06890550) underneath. Normally, the metal retainer (06890552) can be pushed in, and the chrome handle (sleeve) will pull off. It appears to be corroded to the brass unit adapter. I have drilled a hole above the adapter and squirted liquid wrench over the top of the adapter, but am still unable to get the two parts (handle and adapter) to separate. Therefore, I cannot remove the stem and bonnet assembly to repair it.
Use baking soda to remove the corrosion mix a little in apaper cup and brush on with toth brush
I do not have a clear picture but can you not put two screw drivers under the lip of the chrome and pry up
One other thought is to tap the top adapter with a hammer to see if it will break loose
