There are O rings that seal the various body parts of this faucet. I would try turning off the supply lines, removing the handle, and unscrewing the faucet and the housings. Look for O rings that seal each part. Could be a broken, or maybe some foreign material has gotten in the O ring grooves. Best bet would be to replace any O rings and tighten it all back securely. It should not have any Up and Down play, should only swivel side to side. I'm thinking O rings. While there, you can replace the seat seals and springs, so that you preclude any leaks from the faucet itself. Lowes, Home Depot, carry the repair kits for these faucets at a reasonable price. And they usually include the allen wrench and wrench to remove the handle and the body parts. And they are relatively inexpensive. Around 4 to 6 dollars. Its an easy fix.

Is this the Axor model with one handle? Of so you need to get a new element - the central piece inside the faucet - from Hansgrohe which costs about $45. It comes with a little repair kit that has very low quality instructions.
You need to use a metric tool #3 to unscrew the little piece in the back of the handle - then the handle comes off. You have to pull it hard to get it off.
The repair kit that comes with the element has a tool to screw off the main collar of the faucet and pull out the old element. The tool is a piece of junk that bends out of shape immediately and doesn't open the collar, and possibly cuts your hand in the process. Somebody at Hansgrohe was too busy having a coffee break to figure out that by the time you repair one of these units, it's probably been in service for several years and has a good deal of corrosion and means you need to good solid tool to unscrew the collar. The tool they send is pathetic. It's actually better, if you can, to use the side of it across the two niches in the back of the collar to make the turn. You may need to give the collar a few whacks with a small hammer to loosen it, but be careful not to hit the visible part of the faucet, is it will dent easily and not look so great after you complete the repair. Once you get the collar out the replacement isn't very hard. I've done this repair twice and am so irritated by the lousy instructions and bad tool that I'll never buy another piece from Hansgrohe.
