Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to replace the o-ring on the spray arm of a Kohler Coralais faucet, mdl K-15160-CP. I need help on how to disassemble that area so the o-ring can be replaced.

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

The o-ring is stretched and has been for awhile but now it is hard to remove the spray arm or to reinsert it.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if possible.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so.

It its the o-ring on the spray arm that holds the arm secure when inserted.
Plumber: WCohn, Journeyman Plumber replied 2 months ago

Can you look at the above parts breakdown and tell me the part number?

77590

Okay so the one on the valve end of the hose rather than the spray head end?

Ask Your Own Plumbing Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It is on the Spray arm just before it attaches with the hose.
Plumber: WCohn, Journeyman Plumber replied 2 months ago

It should just unscrew

What part unscrews from the othe?
Plumber: WCohn, Journeyman Plumber replied 2 months ago

The hose unscrews from the spray head. You said part number 77590. I only see 77950.

OK I will let you go and check what I can Do.
Plumber: WCohn, Journeyman Plumber replied 2 months ago

The hose goes down the “spout” then loops back up towards the valve. This connection is under the sink in the cabinet
