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.
If your faucet is of this type, you will find the set screw after pushing back the handle. Unscrew it to remove the handle. Now, carefully take the escutcheon cap off, mounting screws to pull the cylinder out. The neoprene seal can be taken off with a blunt screwdriver. Wipe off all the cylinder openings with white vinegar and if you notice any damaged seals, replace them. To change the entire cylinder, simply place the new one in its place. After replacement, reassemble the entire faucet.
Follow the instructions in the replacement kit, and fix the new faucet in place. If you want to avoid going through all this trouble, you can simply replace the entire faucet with a new one. It will however, be an expensive choice.
