Hi All,

I believe what I have here is a Kohler fixture but I am not positive as it was installed by a former owner. It has developed a drip that I would like to fix by replacing the cartridge. The problem I am having is that while I can unscrew the fitting that seats around the base of the handle, it cannot slide off the handle due to its curve, and I cannot figure out how to remove the handle from my current vantage point. Any suggestions?

And if anyone indeed knows this fixture, will I need another tool to get at the cartridge?

If your pulling the handle out and its hard to remove that means there is something holding the handle in place.

Do you see the set screw anywhere ?
Nowhere around the handle. I hear you, and just thinking there is something less obvious that I am missing.

Can you see if this part unthreads off ? If it does than the set screw should be in there .
