ok, on the hadle there will be a plastic cap you pop off, under that there is a screw to remove the handle. some dont have caps I'm not sure on yours, make sure the water is off to it, the take a cresent wren and remove the top nut on the faucet, then pull the center out, in some cases you can just replace the ruuber seal on the insert itself, you can go to Lowes and bring the whole center piece with you, it pulls up and out, they will get you what you need for that, in otherwords once you take the nut off the entire center piece will pull out, take that to lowes, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
