I've reviewed the posts on replacing the faucet. Mine seems to have broken at the threads that attach the arm piece to the base. So out to get a replacement today.
Question: I looked under the sink at the large nut holding the threaded base in place and there were at least two screws in the nut. Can someone who has done this tell me what they're for? Just to hold the big nut tight??
Any other tricks to the install, special tools??
Thanks in advance.
Happy Holidays.

I installed a Grohe faucet as a replacement, and it has a somewhat different method of installation. All that is needed is a couple of metric open end wrenches. No large nut like the old faucet, or standard kitchen faucets for that matter.

I can't comment on the two screws in the nut. Mine didn't have that from what I remember.

David,

If the two screws are holding two halves of the nut together, then they are used to clamp the nut tight. Loosen the screws and then remove the nut.

David- IIRC the nut is not that thick so you can't get a wrench on it, and the screws are the final tightening mechanism. Loosen the screws & (if corrosion is not an issue) you should be able to back the nut off.
