Question about Kohler Model 10430: Fort® Single-control Remote Valve Kitchen Sink Fauc...
Under the handle, there is a curved trim ring at the top that needs to be unscrewed from the base. This can be on tight due to hard water buildup. I cut two strips of rubber to wrap, one to wrap around the trim ring and the other to wrap base while using channel locks for the trim ring and a pipe wrench to keep the base from turning.
After that is off, you will see a large hex head retainer nut that holds the valve assembly in place. A spanner wrench will get that off fairly easy.
Reassembly is the reverse. Kohler specs the hex nut to be torqued at 9 ft-lbs or 1//4 turn past hand tight.

Tuen the stops off unsder the sink . Remove the alaen screw from the handle. Using a spanner wrinch or a needle nosed pliers spred apart unscrew the large nut that has two slots. Lift the whole assembly out. Take assembly to the plunmbign supply and match ius the kit that youy need with has two new rubber seals and two springs and maybe a new spanner nut. It also comes with the spanner wrench and allen wrench needed to renstall. Tip you may be able just to tighten the spanner nut(clockwise) and stop the leak w/o rebuilding it.

Is cheaper to replace the whole tap as the service kits cost almost as much as the tap to buy, I presume you are talking about a flick mixer tap (that is what they are called in australia)
Replacing them is reasonably easy, turn off water at the main out on the footpath turn the tap on to let the water run out, go under the sink with a couple of spanners or deep reach socket and undo the lines and the tap hold down nuts and remove, replace in reverse order

Remove the air-irater at the end of the faucet where the water comes out. That is where 99% of clog are on faucets. If that does not do it then you need to replace the cartridge.
Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
