Steps to follow repair disc faucets:

A. Remove decorative cap and lift out cylinder:

After turning off the water at the shutoff, locate the set-screw and loosen it with a wrench to remove the handle.

Under the handle is a decorative escutcheon cap that may screw or pop off. With the cap out of the way, remove the cylinder mounting screws and lift out the cylinder.

B. Check for Debris, Damage

Now,  try to remove the neoprene seals and check them for debris, damage or wear. If the disc below the seal is dirty, try cleaning it with an abrasive kitchen pad, then rinse and replace it. If you find the disc is damaged, replace with new one. This may be all that’s required to fix the problem. Re-arrange the faucet and check for leaks.

C.  Replace the Cylinder

If the faucet still leaks after cleaning or replacing the seals, may you one of the discs is damage. You have to repeat steps 1 and 2 in preparation for replacing the cylinder.

After turning the water off and removing the escutcheon cap and mounting screws, carefully lift the old cylinder out of the faucet body and drop in the replacement.

D. Reassemble the Faucet

Reassemble the faucet: tight down the mounting screws, replace the escutcheon cap, and reinstall the handle.

Now, the job is done.
