Take out the handle's center cover, also known as its screw cover. This cover is more like a decorative part which hides the handles retaining the screw beneath. Use a flathead screwdriver, and pry the cover gently so that it pops out.
The sink is attached to the countertop with the help of clips on the downside. To remove it, you need to remove these clips with the help of a socket wrench or a screwdriver. Remove the pipe attached underneath and after making sure that all connections are removed, lift it up from the countertop. Once the old sink is removed, thoroughly clean the countertop surface underneath. The old caulk will need to be removed, with the help of a putty knife.
Inspect the rubber washer. From whatever little plumbing experience that I have, I have seen that most faucet leakages are caused by worn out washers and threads. Just looking at the washer itself will give you a good idea of whether it is in good condition or not. Replace the worn out washer with a new one of the same size and thickness.
While you fix the leak in the kitchen sink, if at all you find there is no problem, fix the slip joint nuts and washers as well as refasten the ends of the pipes.
