The Franke Olympus Spring Bush for Valve SP3868 might be required if fitting new valve and the existing brass bush can not be separated from the old valve that is being replaced. If you can remove the existing valve without removing the brass bush then you might not require this spare part, or if the leak stops just by replacing the Valve, then you can return the Brass bush for a refund.

It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Kitchen Tap Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture (or the Valve that you purchased from us). It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached.
