Kitchen sink side spray clips/couplings don't match any replacement parts

We're renting a house and don't know the make/model of our kitchen faucet (any tips on how to id it?)
The side spray has been leaking for a couple of months so my husband decided to replace it. Only he's tried 3 different replacement kits from Home Depot, Walmart, etc., and nothing fits.
The faucet is a brushed chrome or stainless finish, wiht a lever handle that sits next to the spigot. The side sprayer sits on the opposite side of the lever. The existing side spray has a non-threaded connector that is covered by two halves of black plastic which are in turn held together by a wire clip. It connects to a coupler under the spigot that seems extremely long, and the bottom part of it is unthreaded. The hose won't fit onto the unthreaded part for a long enough distance to screw onto the threads at the top of the coupler, if that makes any sense
The 2 pieces of the black plastic connector cover popped apart and now the wire clip won't secure them back on.
Any ideas? Why won't a standard replacement kit work? We're going crazy!
ALSO, we seem to have developed a mysterious leak/seepage on the laminate flooring directly in front of the sink & dishwasher. Could this be related, or is it more likely the result of a problem with the dishwasher?

First off I would put this issue at the top of my to do list because the laminate flooring will not hold up at all with a constant water bath. That being said, turn off the water to this faucet and remove the entire faucet. Take it to a hardware store or hardware department of a box store and see if the broken part can be replaced. If yes, good. If no, replace the faucet as this is a lot cheaper than replacing the laminate floor. Good luck

It sprays fine but off the spray thair is no presuser . we replaced the water lines in the house we have good preasure though out our home jest not at the kitchen sink

One of the greatest things about Franke Faucets is that they have a lifetime guarantee. If you recently changed the waterlines in the home then more than likely when the water was turned back on or lines pressurized the settlement in the water main (Outside of your home) was activated and clogged the aerator. Most aerators simply turn counter clockwise (With the water off) after remooving the aerator simply clean and dislodge any particles in another sink. As for the pull out, some models have an inline screen located between the hose and the faucet handle. Simpy remove the handheld faucet (With the water off) and clean the screen.

There are 2 sets of nuts and washers underneath the faucet that holds the faucet in place. loosen them and the water lines (after turning the water off) faucet lifts off from the top of the sink. Replacement the the same, just in reverse. BE SURE TO USE TEFLON TAPE OR PLUMBERS PUTTY ON THE WATER LINE THREADS TO PREVENT COSTLY LEAKS.
