SOURCE: leaking single lever kitchen tap
on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam
if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten
if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool
use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick
after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

Re the 'falling handle' issue, I think you misunderstood the problem, jgwhomeequip. Unfortunately for me I bought *two* similar Price Pfister faucets and both had the same problem - the water wouldn't stay on and the handle just wouldn't stay up.
I took mine apart looking for something to adjust, fruitlessly. Put it back together and have lived with it like that for ~2 years.
Finally I decided to not be a knucklehead any longer and call the manufacturer. Once I got through to their rep (on a Saturday no less!) she helped me identify the model I had (a 533-50SS, just FYI), and asked me 'what finish'? I replied 'stainless steel' and she promptly replied, 'I'm going to mail you out new lighter handles to replace the ones you have'.
Brilliant! Gold star for PP for standing behind their product well past the warranty for what was apparently a common problem. Replacing the handle will take about 10 seconds per faucet.
I only wish I had got of my a$$ and called them 2 years ago.

Hope that's helpful to somebody.

Turn off water
Remove the handle with an allen wrench, usually 1/8".
Unscrew the dome with a pair of channel lock pliers with a rag to prevent scratching.
Wiggle out the old cartridge with the channel lock pliers.
Clean all innards with WD-40.
