Can anyone tell me if you can take a tap apart without removing it, and how if you can, thanks.

Hi there,

Most taps have a red or blue plastic indicator cap on the top; which can be flipped off with a small screwdriver.

With the plastic caps removed you can get a screwdriver into the hole to unscrew the bolt that holds the tap handle in place.

With the handle removed you have full access to the internals of the tap and can tighten up the packing or remove the internals to change the washers.

Hope this helps.allthumbz

Best regards,

PS

Put the plug in the sink before you do anything .... allthumbz allthumbz

.... otherwise I will hear the groan of frustration from here when something disappears down the plughole! tap_fingers tap_fingers

The Nuevo uses single lever mixer taps. Not sure of the make, could be Whale, Comet or Reich. Look on EBay and try to identify what brand matches with what you got, then come back and someone with have taken theirs apart.
