Solution 1 from Rico did work but it required the use of pliers in each hand to apply enough pressure to hold the top part in place and to pull on the bottom part down. It took several attempts but it came apart.

If you have replaced boots and springs and or cartridges. Did you replace with after market parts or OEM. If after market parts were used use OEM. Hope this helps.

OK, since you're going to need "the rest of the story..." to get this faucet un-installed without breaking anything.

Here's a copy of the manufacturer's installation instructions, which, if you read in reverse order - provides the disassembly instuctions!


It even has pictures, which will really help since we all forget about the one screw (that's fastened from underneath the sink in the middle of the faucet assembly) which holds it onto sink.

Don't forget - only licensed plumbers are allowed to display their "plumbers crack" while working, (all others have to keep it covered!)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

I've installed quite a few of these from the big box stores that leak. There are 2 rubber pieces inside the valve body that act as seats. The seats are what turn the water on and off as you move the handle. These rubbers need to be replaced. You can buy a delta repair kit, which will contain these parts. Where the faucet is new, it might be easier to bring it back

It probably is a clogged aerator. The small piece, right where the water comes out, unscrews. There is a screen behind it the often collects dirt and minerals. Clean that off and try it again
