Hi all,

 

I went to undertake a seeming simple task of replacing some washers for the bathroom basin taps.

 

Something I have done before, and usually there is a screw under the head cap the holds the head down.

 

In this case, there is no screw, and I am somewhat stumped.  I have googled it to death, and cant find anything about it.

 

Has anyone come across or seen something like this, or have any idea on how to remove the head? 

 

I have attached some pictures.

 

Thanks in advance.

Now that you've unthreaded that thingy, the handle should come off.

You might have to lever it from both sides at the same time.

The head cap is the securing screw. Now you have removed the cap it should come off, but may need a bit of leverage if it's been a while. Using a screwdriver and easing it up from underneath should do it.

Ahhhh!  Thank you guys, that worked.  It seems I was not giving it enough encouragement..

 

I don't think this head has ever been removed.

 

 

 

Much appreciated!

It's always a concern, when you're not sure how much "encouragement" is too much! 

 

There are lots of things in my house that I have "encouraged" a little too much...

By the way, OP, those taps are pretty old. You may find replacements are due.

Absolutely! Couldn't agree more.  

 

There is a bathroom reno in the wings, if the kitchen ever gets finished. We will be replacing everything then. Just need to stop the drips for a little longer.
