If the handle hub (#4) is still attached the faucet, you will need to remove it by rotating it counter-clockwise. remove cross hub.png

We recommend rebuilding the handle on top of a Phillips screwdriver for ease of installation. Follow the number of the parts in order from part #1 to part #5.

For installing part #6: The handle elbow (#6) and the handle adapter (#2) interlock. Match the interior profile of the handle elbow (#6) with the outer profile of the handle adapter (#2).
