First of all, if you've never fixed a faucet before, do not attempt to accomplish the task all by yourself. Instead of doing any good, you may end up making an even bigger mess. Rely on a professional when it comes to dealing with unknown territories.
First part of the plumbing project is removing the old sink. If you don't want your kitchen to be transformed into a swimming pool, I recommend that you close all the water inlet valves of the sink, before going ahead. Also, disconnect the other connections like supply tube, disposal, and trap. Be careful and keep a tub underneath, while removing the pipes, as they may still contain residual water inside.
If your fixture is old and made up of materials such as brass or chrome, remember to lay down a piece of cloth on the surface. If you find that leakage has not stopped, even when you have replace the O ring; then certainly it is the cartridge which is defective or damaged. In such cases, replace the older cartridge with a new one. Do not forget to turn off the main water supply, in order to prevent wastage of water.
Now, you can install the water lines back again and attach the U-shaped disposal pipe underneath. You will need to apply pipe threading compound to pipe ends and seal the connections. Also, connect the garbage disposal unit back again. Attach the faucet back again, with the help of a pipe wrench. With that, your job is complete.
