    Hi everyone.
    Hoping someone might be able to help me out with a quick query.

    I've got a dripping kitchen mixer tap - which drips only when the hot water is switched on.

    I'm presuming it just needs a new washer, but I'm unable to access the headgear nut. I've removed the cap from the tap, but I'm then presented with what's in the pictures below. The tap itself feels like it is still fixed on with a (loose-ish) screw.

    Can anyone help me out with advice on how to remove this tap? Thanks in advance. IMG_20160830_222854.jpg

    Looks like a bit of brute force needed. It will come off .

    You think just lever it off?
