Kitchen faucet handle removal

The kitchen faucet is dripping on our 2016 Wildwood X-Lite 230BHXL. I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the faucet handles. I tried removing the plastic H and C inserts with the tip of a knife, but they don't seem to want to come up. There is no set screw and no visible manufacturer name on the faucet. Photos are below if anyone can help.


Thanks in advance. This is my first post since we bought the camper in 2018, but I've gleaned a lot of useful information from this forum along the way.

On some faucets of that type, the H and C inserts are threaded and screw into the handle, rather than being a friction fit that you can pop out.

Thanks for the reply. I'll have another look to see if that's the case, but they are flush with the top of the handle and it would be difficult to get ahold of anything to screw them out.

I had faucets just like that in my Salem. As far as I know they are not serviceable. My Bride bought new house-type fixtures for the kitchen and bathroom at Home Depot. She said the old fixtures were meant for a dollhouse. The fixtures we have now have low cost replacement cartridges available.

Turns out the covers were pressed in. It just took a more aggressive approach to pry them out with a knife tip to expose the screws. I cleaned everything up and applied plumber's grease to the O-rings and seats. No more drip -- for now!

Cool

Glad you found the solution!

Thank you for coming back and letting us know. All too often we're left in the dark, wondering if problems were ever corrected.

You're welcome. And as a regular user of some motorcycle forums, I agree about follow-up responses.
