How do I take apart this Danze Faucet?

Anyone ever replace the cartridge in their Signature? It is made by Danze, but I have no idea the model number. I've taken the screw out of the top but nothing budges like my home faucets.

That screw/bolt goes into a splined shaft and over time corrosion builds and it seizes to the inside of the handle. Wiggle the handle side to side and back and forth, trying not to move the shaft under it. Hopefully it's not bad enough and you will slowly feel it come apart.

If its too bad, you may have to replace either the entire handle with the new cartridge or the whole faucet.

When you put it back together, use a small amount of plumbers grease or Vaseline on the splines to keep it from doing it again.

I agree with Windsorbill , also try spraying some liquid wrench type fluid in the screw hole it might migrate onto the splines, try using something like 2 short screwdrivers inserted under the handle ,then lift up and wiggle.

Go to your favorite tool store and buy a faucet handle puller. <$20.00

Agree on what others said, but be careful, the handles probably attaches to a piece of ~ plastic that can break if you put too much pressure on it. I broke one off of a Kohler faucet and ended up having to buy the whole inner portion. A puller might be your best option.

If you get it apart look at Gerber as well I guess same company.This looks nearly identical except finish.

Look for a set screw as you move the handle around or possibly unscrew the handle & find it through the handle hole.

Faucet pulling tool?!? Never heard of it. Of course I'm not a plumber, but I'm going to remember that tool exists. Thanks!

Just to let all of you know, Danze sent replacement parts for FREE. Their warranty is pretty good.

Not sure I can justify today adding this tool to my box, but next trip to my local Home Depot, I am going to at least lay eyes on one. I am sure there plumbing expert, John, can lead me right to it. He has helped me through countless plumbing projects.

I can check off at this early point in my day the box "for learn something new everyday."

Your best tool - a BFH. Then go buy a new unit.
