Re: Bathroom faucet handle removal
Every handle valve that I have seen has a screw that holds the handle onto the stem. The top of the handle, directly above the stem, will have a removable button, under which you will find the retaining screw. Remove the screw, then you carefully work the handle loose. Time and calcification will weld the handle in place, so it may take some effort to remove. Wiggle the handle back and forth, tap it on harder with a hammer (lightly ), basically, whatever it takes to break the hold of the calcification and remove the handle.
Once the handle is off, you can get to the stem nut, packing, etc., to repair the leaking faucet. Reassemble in the reverse order you took it apart.
