    Hi there,

    I need to replace my bathroom sink mixer tap but can't remove it from the sink for the life of me.

    I've uploaded a few pictures of the tap from various angles. There doesn't seem to be any screws or allen key points.

    Has anyone seen a tap like this before and knows how to remove it?

    Many thanks
    Matt

    Sometimes it is easier to remove the basin.

    Underneath at the rear will be
    usually a couple of flexi hoses supplying live
    hot and cold which will need isolating. Then there will be a hexagonal long nut which can be undone using a flat head screwdriver usually, then you can withdraw the assembly from the top. Centralheatking
    you can use a mirror to check otherwise do as RPM
    suggests
