If it is just replacing the handle you will only need a smaller screwdriver set (pretty common) and an allen wrench. I don't know exactly what size you need but you can get a set of these wrenches pretty cheap at any tool or hardware store. Basically the tool is a hexagonal rod that is bent in the shape of an "L". You'll need the smaller set for this job sold usually in sets that have a range of sizes from .05" to 3/8" diameter. I would guess your hex nut is 1/8" or less.
On the bottom of the handle between the sink bed and the handle you'll be able to feel a small hole. When you stick the allen wrench in there it should fit snuggly if the allen wrench wiggles a lot go to the next size up. Since the screw is facing up you will pull the other end of the wrench toward you. This will loosen the screw. It will not take a lot of effort so if you have to force it make sure the allen wrench is actually seated. Kind of a pain but you'll have to reposition the wrench as you get it loosened to fully extract the screw.
Once the screw is out the handle will drop down and the cap just pulls off. Assembly is reverse but make sure that your screw is going into the threads without resistance before tightening. This will prevent cross threading.

SOURCE: How to remove the cartridge
first shut off the water under the sink:) next put the stoppers in the sink so you dont drop anything in the drain:) then examine the handle closely and you will find a plastic/rubber "knob" like a wood dowel which is hiding the bolt we need to access to remove the handle. carefully remove it (it may be gone already depending on how old your faucet is and it will be pretty small) most likely you will need an "allan" key to remove it. now there is just the threaded ring which holds the cartridge in place. now its possible that grohe makes a tool designed to remove this ring. i am actually not familiar w/this model but you do not need it. you can use a pair of channel locks w/a dish towel and a lite touch to loosen the ring (ritey titey lefty loosey:) now the cartridge should come rite out but it may take a little coercion. just let me know if you need anything else and good luck:)
