If your valve is single handle there is usually a small
button type of cover for (sometimes rubber the size of a pencil erasure) that covers acces to a hex key screw that you have to remove to remove the handle

once you have removed the handle you will need a large adjustable wrench to turn a large nut that holds the cartridege tighten if still leaks remove and replace you can math the assembly at HD or Lowes

Because there are so many manufacturers each with dozens of styles of faucets, and you didn't mention any of that information, replace the faucet. takes about 15 minutes with the right tools, including a basin wrench.

The swing mixer handle has become very stiff. how do i get it off to clean it/


The first solution is of course correct. However I found it almost impossible to remove the spout assembly. It was very stiff and it was difficult to get any leverage to force it off without damaging the finish to the tap as a whole or damaging the sink.

What I found was that if you poured boiling water over the tap/faucet it eased the stiffness and having done this several times - ie about 5 kettle loads of hot water, I managed to remove the spout. It helps if you reconnect the hose directly to the outlet under the sink (ie not via the faucet). THis allows you to run cold water through the tap whilst pourung boiling water over the outside of the tap. The cold water shrinks the copper/brass components whilst the hot water expands the spout assembly.
Once off, it is possible to clean the inside of the assembly to remove corrosion or calcium deposits to say nothing of old "O" rings.

I also used a kettle descaler between dousing with boiling water in the hope that some of it would seep down within the assembly.

It took me three attempts to do this. I was almost going to spend UK pounds 430 or US dollars 670 and buy a new unit. So do not give up and I hope this helps.
It swings backward and forward now perfectly.

I have a Moen Monticello bathroom faucet. I am


Moving left to right: I am not an expert, but I have installed a fair number of faucets. Seems like a basic issue of just getting under the sink and tightening up. Make sure someone is topside to assure the faucet stays straight and does not move as you tighten up below. It is never easy to get a wrench and your hands in the proper position to tighten up the nut, but don't give up try a smaller Channel lock wrench if necessary.

Severely reduced water pressure from lavatory faucet


Take the strainer off the spout and check to see if there is any dirt or rust buildup in the strainer. This happens when repairs have been done. It usually collects at the first place the water comes out of.

It appears that the seal at the base of the tap is worn or the screw collar is loose - try hand-tightening it. It may cure your problem. Plumbers tape is a white tape that helps seal water pipe joints!

I have a slow leak coming from the spout


ooops, didn't mean for that to be a request, sorry...It was a solution. Although, if you dont want to deal with Moen, you can get one at your local plumbing suplly store. I recommend taking the old one with you (make sure you shut the water off first!). Again, good luck
