I soaked the connection between the handle and the valve body in a penetrating oil for several hours and eventually used more force than I hoped to use to remove the handle. Once the handle and end cap (part 09 209) were removed, I could see that the valve assembly (part 46 048) was loose which caused water to leak from the seals (part 46 209) between the valve assembly and faucet body. So I tighted the screws that hold the valve assembly to the faucet body and the leaked stopped.

The cap has to come off. I usually use a channel lock pliers with a thick rag on the chrome cap .After the cap comes off you may have to put some kind of lub in it such as silicone spray lub. Twist the spout back and forth while raising it up. Yes. I may take quite a bit of strength and many many back and forth motions to come loose. After you have it off you wil see the menerial deposits or damaged o-rings causing the lasck of movement. The o-rings are available at most hardware stores or a plumbing supply store for sure. If the cap cannot come off w/o damage,would you not be willing to replace it anyway,rather than have it stay stationary?

To clean the drain simply remove the packing nut off the back of the pop-up assembly. This is located under the sink itself and will be on the back side of the chrome (might be plastic) pipe coming out of the drain hole. This nut is what is holding the rod in place. When you remove it be sure not to lose the ferule (nylon washer) inside. after the nut is off, you can pull the actual stopper out and have better access to the drain inside. Use a small hair remover (you can buy these at the "depot"), it has a long body with small "spines" coming off the sides to catch hair, to pull out hair. It should be long enough to get into the P-Trap. After you are satisfied you can put the stopper back in. Make sure the hole in the bottom of the stopper is lined up to catch the rod. Reassemble the packing nut with ferule and check for leaks. If you want to take the trap off be sure to have some 'pipe dope' on hand to reseal the threads. Teflon tape is not necessary. Reassemble the trap and check for leaks and you should be good to go. Good luck :).
