    I have a Glacier Bay # 728-075 faucet thats leaking. I believe its Exclusive to Home Depot. After I removed the tip, I did'nt see a set screw or any retaining screw so I can remove the handle in order to access the stem and replace the seats, spring or stem.

    How do you disassemble these?

    Any help appreciated!

    Theres no set screw or anything in there I can pry further:

    The barrel shaped section under the lever unscrews. originally was put on hand tight, but you might need a strap wrench to not scratch the chrome.

    It MAY be Glacier Bay, but it looks like a knockoff of a Moen Monticello, and if so the big "barrel" unscrews from the faucet and the handle comes up with it.

    So the Bigger bottom part unscrews or the part right under the lever I unscrewed?

    The HANDLE does not turn, only the "bulging" part under it. if you try to turn the handle, you will break something.

    Ok so this isnt Moen but Glacier Bay. The bulging barrel part turns with the handle during normal use so Im not sure about this one.

    It should NOT . Yours is stuck. Need to hold the lever, turn the bulge without rotating the lever.

    If it does not come off that way, then the only other way would be if it had small Allen screws somewhere, and it would usually be below the handle so they did not have to make two different handles. Yours does NOT show these. Good luck with "tech support", I once ordered a faucet diverter and got two stems.l

    The handle just pulls off, try rocking it back and forth while pulling up. There will be a screw underneath holding a plastic adapter on the stem.

    GB's tech support leaves much to be desired. I once spent 32 minutes with them before they understood that the cartridge was faulty. It took two months to get the replacement. I reccomend my clients stay away from GarBage.
