    I have a Grohe Ladylux Plus (I think) kitchen faucet, which has gotten a bit loose on the countertop. Some documentation I found on the web, implies that I need to remove the neck and tighten a nut in there. However, I've found absolutely nothing on how to remove the neck! Any clues, please?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Just pull up, it may be tight but it will come off.
    There is only a few o-rings holding it on.
    You need a tool to tighten the neck, it came with the faucet but you may not have it now. It's hard to discribe but it looks like a ribbed handle on one side it has a splined piece sticking out and that is what is used to tighten the faucet.

    That worked great! As you predicted, I didn't have the tool that came with it, but I did find an open-ended wrench that fit. (I knew better than to use pliers!)

    Thanks,

    You saved the day!

    I have been frustrated these past few weeks trying to tighten my Ladylux Cafe faucet... every time I tightened the 'nut' beneath the counter the faucet actually became looser! I found your posting on this blog and bingo(!) within 2 minutes I had the problem fixed. I used a crescent wrench to tighten the facet (I had no idea that the top of the faucet containing the spray arm would pop off. Many, many, thanks for the help!!

    To use the regular tool, you would have had to take the hose out, which is a real pain to keep the spring from tangling, so the Crescent wrench is a much better solution.

    I am trying to remove an older Grohe Ladylux Plus 33 737 (8 years) and unfortunately I can not get the neck off above the counter to loosen the unit and can not unscrew the "washer" since it is threaded. Any thoughts?

    The neck should lift off and up.
    That's where you can put a wrench on it.

    I've try prying it with a screw driver and hitting it with a hammer to pop it off but no luck. only choice left is a hack saw unless there is another option. thanks,
