Turn off the water to the sink.  Remove the top plate of the faucet by unscrewing the screws on the top of the plate.  If your faucet is a two-hole faucet, remove the second screw for the handle.

Determine which side of your faucet is leaking by shutting off the water supply valves one at a time. If the leak doesn’t stop after the first valve is turned off, it’s the other line that’s leaking.

Once you determine which side is leaking, turn off both supply valves.  

If your valves are stuck, shut off the water main. You will have to replace hardware for both sides since you won’t be able to identify whether the hot or cold side is leaking.

Turn Off the Water Supply. Look under the sink to locate the shutoff valves on the water supply lines for the faucet.  

Remove the Faucet Handle.  

Remove the Retaining Nut.  

Remove the Old Cartridge.

Buy a New Cartridge.

Install the New Cartridge.
