It has started to make vibrating noises and drips whenever I run the upstairs hot water bath taps. I assumed there would be a screw under the handle that screws off, but when I took it off it was just the thread. Any advice would be greatly appreciated or it’s a whole new mixer.

    Undo the hex bolt in where the lever goes

    Looks like you will need a metric size Allen key from here.

    The "thread" you mention is one end of a grub screw. Use an Allen key (probably 2.5 mm or 3 mm) to undo it in the normal direction.

    And ………… cover the waste hole with a cloth or something in case you drop the little thing and it disappears down the waste. ;)

    Fantastic! I did think that but wasn’t sure. Thanks for your replies. I will grab a set from work and try it when I get home.

    Next, you have to do the tap cartridge shuffle to find what you need... Very best of luck :(
