I am trying to find manufacturer/model or manual of the old faucet. One of the cartridges is leaking.
Could not find anything on the body of the valve.
Don't even know how to take it apart or separate handle from stem.
Tried to pull white cap off of the handle, but don't want to force and break it.
Do I need to take all the fittings from the body underneath and then pull stem with handle through the hole?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you

Top white cap should screw off, then polish chrome ring should lift off. You should be able to remove handle from top of sink and replace the cartridge. Unfortunately, there are numerous manufacturers that offered that design. Price Pfister(handles look like PP, but not spout), Newport Brass, and Altmans.

Thank you, I will try to unscrew the top.

Looks like a Grohe to me... Until I saw the ASU stamp.. grohe of that era would have been made in West Germany.

I sent pictures/called Grohe- this faucet is not theirs.
My first thought was USA stamped on the body, but it is stamped backwards. Don't think it was a mistake. It looks like ASU or A2U

I was looking up a similar faucet that someone needed ID'd and recalled this similar looking faucet. Pretty sure thats USA taken in "Selfie" mode which produces a mirror image. Once corrected, the USA is evident and you can see the difference in the 2 in the model number stamped below it. .. Still a mystery as to the manufacturer.

I'm thinking Moen Concentrix
What I noticed on the OP's picture of the faucet is that the spout doesn't have an aerator. Some of the Kohler Aternas didn't have aerators but I can't find pics of those. But the cylindrical shape of the valve bodies looks similar to some of the kohler pics I looked at too.

But its definately a USA manufacture.
