OH Dear the tap is dripping now I have to fit a new washer
Most important find somewhere to turn the water off, this is in my loft
Take off the fancy trim
oooh blimey you can see thats not been off for a few years
Remove the screw that retains the knob
Remove the knob reavealing the innards
Remove the innards with an aproipriate tool
The old washer complete with the split that caused the drip
The new washer all smooth and in place
Back up to the loft to turn the water back on , Oh look there is my old spectrum
All clean not dripping and ready to use
