A "basin wrench" is the special tool you need. They are pretty cheap. Any hardware or home improvement store carries them. They might even have them at Walmart. Google images for basin wrench and you will see lots of illustrations, including how to use it. Good luck Please vote if you found this helpful Al K

If it is a single hole faucet, there should be a single nut on the threaded brass piece underneath the sink. You may need a basin wrench to get access to it if you cannot get to it with an adjustable jaw wrench. This nut normally clamps against a U shaped washer that is against the underside of the sink.

Single handle Spray faucet leaks at it's base, leaking under the kitchen sink


If you still have the receipts from the purchase call Moen directly as they warranty their faucets for life and will send you the replacement parts you need. If you need to purchase replacement parts then you can purchase a Moen single lever repair kit from your local hardware store which should run you around $10. Go the the Moen website and look for your model. They generally have an exploded view of every one of their models that will assist you in dissassembling the tap without any surprises. Reassemble the tap with the new o-rings etc installed and test.
