Two things that you have to do is
- Identify which Rangemaster Bridge you have , and
- Then order the correct valve for the water feed you are trying to fix (they work the opposite way from what you would expect and all details below about this)
1. Which Rangemaste Bridge Tap do I have ? – the Valve here is for the most ‘modern’ styles of this Tap below
Rangemaster Traditional Belfast Bridge Mixer Tap TBL3 Valve
Nut Height: 8, Splines: 28, Overall height: 53mm, Diameter at thread: 21mm
If your Tap is dripping from the Spout then you might need to change your Valves. Here is our Guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve.
Please note that there is another Rangemaster Bridge Mixer Tap, TBL1 which has white ceramic effect handles. It has different legs and the handle also looks different and it takes a DIFFERENT valve.
Here is a close up of the Traditional Belfast Bridge Mixer Tap TBL3 that you can order Valves for here (note the long adjustable legs of the Tap and the modern handles (which are available in the Chrome finish in Chrome, White or Black):
Now take a look at the other two Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Taps below and take a look at the handles and legs. You CANNOT order Valves for the TB1 Tap on this product page. You need to go to a different product page to order Valves for the TBL1 Tap, here (as this TBL1 Tap takes a 20 spline / 50mm Valve).
2. Which Valve to buy, CO or ACO ? WHICH BRIDGE TAP DO I HAVE?
VERY IMPORTANT: Provided that your Levers are extended outwards (like open arms) when Turned OFF (which is the correct way it should be fitted)
Cold Water Feed (right hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a HOT CO
Hot Water Feed (left hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a COLD ACO
(which is the opposite to what you would expect, but horizontal levers open the opposite way to standard two lever taps.
Here is some further detail / explanation: Provided your Tap has been plumbed correctly i.e. that the levers are extended horizontally when Tap in OFF position (and the Hot feed is on the left and the Cold feed on the right), then please note the following:

It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture. It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached.
For tips on how to separate a Valve from a Brass Bush, see here.
If the Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush as well (see You May Also Like section below)
If your Tap is dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your Franke Bridge Lever Tap O Ring Kit 1506R
