How do you remove the lever of a kitchen kohler clairette faucet, it seems to be stuck


On the front of the faucet handle, there is a small plastic cover with an emblem on it. Gently pry it off with a sharp knife blade. Next you will notice a small "allen" screw head. Remove it by turning it counter clockwise until it's loose. (lefty loosie - righty tighty) Lift the handle straight up to remove.

The cold-water handle on my Kohnler K-454-4S Memoirs Widespread Lavatory Faucet is dripping. Kohler sent me replacement cylinder GP77006-RP, but my handyman can't remove the handle without fear of...


He needs a handle puller. Once the screw is removed the handle puller has a long point on it that goes into where the screw was and then the outside of the handel puller clamps around the handle. You then turn the T part of the puller and up come the handle with no damage

Best of luck Rich

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    How do I open the body of K-10430 apart to replace the valve cartridge kit that's leaking


    The handle has a allen set screw loosen that until the handle comes off then the bonnet nut will unscrew revealing the bonnet cap and washer the cartridge should be under that most kohler's require a special tool to remove cartridge(turn water to faucet off prior to working on faucet,also note how everything is removed it needs to be replaced in same order especially the cartridge,also you should use plumbers grease to coat all seal when replacing everything).

    Water leaking at handle when turned on


    1- Hanldle may have a cap that will come off to access screw to loosen or allen screw on the handle to remove it.
    First thing you can check remove handle and make sure the nut that holds stem down is not loose. You can tighten it and try this first just replace handle turn on and check for leaks.

    If not please go to step 2 in removal of stem

    2- Cut water off and remove handle to gain access to stem. Next remove stem by untighting nut at the base. Remove stem and replace o rings on stem about middle of it. That will stop water from leaking at the base.
