Trying to take apart kitchen sink to repair leak.

I have a vintage sink with dual handles and a single faucet. After removing the screws holding the faucet handle down, I unscrewed the handle as far as it would go and it does not come off. Everything I've read implies it will just pop off (eventually) so I don't want to force it. Is there a trick to getting these handles off?

You may have to force them a little, I believe there are some plumb putty under the faucet and the handle. if you are unlucky, there may be some caulking under the handle and the foucet insteand of plumber's putty.

Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle


Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench  and allen wrench  needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.
