How do I remove a single handle moen faucet with a more recent one?

by Jam

At the moment, I have a single handle pull faucet (kinda looks like a big round door knob)....I want to replace it with a lever...how do I do this? can this be done without damaging tile...I would like to keep the spout (can I keep the existing spout?)....thanks

ANSWER

Pop the top of the faucet off, there should be a round plastic or metal cover in the middle of the faucet. Underneath is a brass screw that holds the handle on, remove this screw and remove the handle. If you want to replace it with a lever, you will need to buy a complete new faucet with the lever handle, follow the instructions to install the new faucet. You may need to turn the water off just before the hot water heater to do this work.
