Kitchen Faucet Bad Vibration

When turning on the cold water quickly on the kitchen mixer it either does not flow at all or vibrates like a jack hammer! Hot and anywhere in between is okay, and gradually applying cold is okay, but straight on is disaster. Also the cold flow is weak. I thought changing campsites might didn't

So the faucet needs attention, pleeeeeeeease tell me I am wrong, if not how do I remove it to repair it, there does not seem to be any mounting scews from above and my old tired body does not like the look of disconecting those pipes from the bottom, my ribs are fragile

Any miracle cures

i'm thinking u can pull the valves from the top. u may be able to get into it that way and see if u can see if the "O" ring is out of place.
other than that, my only other suggestion would be to remove the entire faucet. the plex fittings are probably hand tight. unfortunately, ur ribs will take a beating.
i'm assuming u have a seperate cold and hot valve. u can still work on a single lever faucet but it probably doesn't use "O" rings for flow control.
