Get a pair of pliers and locate a nut or pin securing the cartridge in place. Using the pliers remove this by turning the nut or popping off the pin and keep the smaller parts aside. Pull the cartridge out of the wall very carefully to prevent any damage.
Check if the valve seat, which is at the bottom of the faucet, is damaged. Remove the valve seat by using the allen wrench (move it in anti-clockwise direction), and install the new valve seat with the help of the screwdriver.
Finish off by fixing everything back in reverse order. Fix the last thing you dismantled for reassembling the whole faucet ensemble. Again cleaning up the faucet at this point will be a good idea to keep it free of dirt, mildew, and grime. Once you reassemble the unit, test it by turning on the cold and hot water to make sure that there are no leaks.
First thing you need to do is drain the sink of all the residual water. This will reduce the possibility of dripping.
