Start by shutting the water off.
-Then pop off the little cap over top of your handle (usually it's the little plastic cap with the letter C for Chaud on it)
-There should be a screw in there, most likely all rusted, so make sure you are careful when you unscrew it or else you'll just end up with a screw tout dégeulé
-Turn counter-clockwise to unscrew.
-Remove the handle
- Use a pair of pliers the metal thing ''cartouche'' that is in there, make sure you are unscrewing the whole thing and not just the top. Unscrewing only the top would come down to doing the same thing your handle does.
-That's it, check for any rubber that seem damaged, if your not sure, change them all. These rubbers should cost about 3.29$ at any good RONA store (hmmm, I wonder how I know that)
-Repeat the same thing with the cold water since you're already in there with tools.
P.S. Once you have unscrew the ''cartouche'' check the hole with your pinky to see if the seats are damaged or not. If it feels smooth then it is in good condition, if not then change those as well as they will wear the rubbers down fast.
