Water leaks out fro handle when turning water on. I think something inside the handle needs to be replaced, do you know the brand of this faucet? Thanks

    Not sure the brand, but as a general guide you usually have to;
    Turn off the water for that handle
    Pry off the little cap at the top center to get to a screw
    Remove screw to pull off handle
    Unscrew the bulging bit (not the part that's touching the sink, just the part above it
    Then you can see what you have, send pic here or bring pic down to hardware store

    Good idea to put drain plug in to stop any fumbled parts from falling into drain
    Good idea to have small pail or rags handy when you turn off water supply.. sometimes they start dripping when you close them off - if theyve been untouched for a long time. Worst case there, is you might need a new shutoff valve.
