Thanks for your help.
If he had the faucets open the Pressure was already released from the system.He had all water sources Off. King Kong does work at the filter Mfg. Like Dunnic said Lube the threads & Oring! Youroo!!

Thanks again everyone for your suggestions. Had to us a grip strap to loosen the canister since King Kong apparently tightened it and I didnt have the standard wrench. Found a replacement filter and plumbers grease at Lowes. Happy camper again.

GREAT, hope you greased the o ring and the canister surface and the mounting surface liberally. Sure makes next time a lot easier. The grease sure cuts down on the blue words.

How do you get the grease into the faucets? There does not appear to be a screw or nut on the handle that can be removed? Do the handle's pry off or what?

I'd like to know too. My kitchen hot faucet squeaks.

Pull the little tab out of the top of the handle and remove the screw holding the handle on. Unscrew the escutchin holding the center in and pull the center of the faucet out. Lub the entire assy and re-assemble the faucet. Use Danco silicone grease. Shop Danco Silicone Grease at Lowes.com

Hmm, mine isn't like that. Mine has no tab or screw. There is a small pin hole though. I'll try a paper clip in the hole to see if it releases that way. It would be too simple to make it like my home ones. Thanks.

Mine doesn't have a tab or a screw at the top either. It looks like the handle would need to be pried off but I don't want to do that without knowing for sure how it comes off.
