Best way to fix it is to replace it.

Absolutely. Same one I have. Big plastic piece of crap. Been meaning to replace it, but never think about it 'til I'm camping. As far as removing the handle, I haven't looked at it that closely yet.

Just before you turn on hot water, turn up the volume on stereo

My apologies, MainelyUS. I couldnt help it. Thats what we used to do many years ago when the car or teuck developed a squeak.

The ones I've seen like that the handle is sitting on a sprocket and a screw from the bottom comes up through the middle of the sprocket into the handle to secure it.

I have one like that. I take the handles off, remove and grease the cartridge "O" rings a couple of times a year. The handle you use to turn the faucet on and off just unscrew. Grab the lever and give it a twist to the left, the rest is obvious. Be careful pulling the cartridges, the rubber seats under them are spring loaded. About a five minuet job. I use silicone food grade faucet grease found at home depot.

Squeaky faucet

PhoneDude8289, thanks for the info. In the pic I wasnít able to remove the cylinder I think itís one piece and connected to the water supply. But I greased all the moving parts...it seems to do the trick so far Click image for larger version

The cylinder will lift right out, may need a little wiggle, friction fit because of "O" rings now that you have that nut off. Ounce the cylinder is out you have access to the "O" rings and give it all a good coat of grease.
