1) Turn off water supplies to tap. Place plug in waste to prevent loss of small pieces.
2) Remove Boss A by unscrewing in an anticlockwise direction from Valve C.
3) Unscrew Boss A and once free pull off.

4) The Vernier Insert B may be left inside Boss A or remain on Valve C. Remove and replace if damaged.
5) Please go to stage 8 if replacing the Vernier Insert B only.
FOR VALVE CHANGING PROCEDURE
Note: When changing valve note that two valves can be used. One valve has a groove around which represents the HOT valve whilst the COLD valve is plain (See diagram). Before removing the valve from the mixer, check that the valve supplied is a suitable replacement.
6) Unscrew Valve C using a 17mm or adjustable spanner.
7) Fit new Valve C to body and tighten firmly. Recommended torque setting 15Nm.
8) Slide Vernier Insert B onto Valve C.
9) Slide Boss A onto Vernier Insert B, just enough to see if it is correctly orientated.
10) To get exact alignment on the tap it may be necessary to remove the Vernier Insert B and turn a few splines until correct alignmet can be achieved.
11) Boss A can now be screwed back over Valve C.
12) Your tap should now be ready for use, turn on supply and check carefully for any leaks.
