Discuss Ceramic Cartridge Replacement? in the Valves & Taps area at

    Any idea how to replace the cartridge in one of these taps? No top to unscrew, no grub screw in the body. Looks like it might just pull off, but don’t want to attempt it if it’s the wrong thing to do! TIA

    Probably find the lower chrome shroud (below tap handles and just above tap body) will unscrew. Try rubber gloves or "Boa" type wrench for better grip.

    Did you get that wheel off and replace the valve?

    In the end someone else swapped the whole tap as I was too busy and apparently the part was obsolete. I still need to pick up the tap as the landlord wants the original restored if possible. Will let you know how I get on!

    It can easily be restored back to perfect functionality David.
    Have a look at my website on how to do it ;)
    Apologies for the plug :rolleyes:
