 faucet handles
Author: Denny12 (MI)

I have separate hot and cold bathroom faucets. I want to get to the cores and replace whatever needs to be since they drip when all the way off. How do you get the handle off if it doesn't have a screw in the top. There is no set screw either.

Can you post a picture of your faucet? If there's no screw, then either the handle is attached to the barrel below it and the barrel is unscrewed to remove the assembly, or the handle has a plastic retainer and the handle pops on and off.
