Installation of the Kitchen Split Bearing Washer 115061
**NOTE: The gray bearing washer has a small gap. The spout will nearly bottom out at the base plate of the faucet. You will notice that just a small portion of the washer will be showing once the spout has been reinstalled over the valve body.
- Loosen the faucet from underneath the sink by using a 5/8” socket wrenchor the installation toolon the mounting nut.
- Then, with one hand lift up the valve body.
- As the photo to the right shows you will want to place the bearing washer below the bottom O-ring into the groove and use both hands to squeeze the bearing washer into place.
- Once the bearing washer is set into position retighten the faucet mounting nut with your 5/8” socket wrench or installation tool.
INCORRECT INSTALLATION: The gray bearing washer in this photo has a much larger gap than the correct installation shows.
