    If no grub screw at back of that tap head, which is highly likely I reckon with that tap, - then it pulls off vertically.
    But might need a bit of strength to do so.
    If it doesn’t budge it might be possible to lever on opposite sides under the head with 2 flat blade screwdrivers, carefully doing it to avoid damage.
    If the tap head is quarter turn on/off type, then it is ceramic disc works and not a tap washer type. Ceramic works normally have to be fully replaced but not always easy to source exact type

    Like those funny mirrors at the fair ground that either make you look 2 feet tall and the same wide or 8’ tall and like a beanpole

    My missus looked in the former type once and asked me ‘how do I look’ ?

    You can guess my answer and your right, it didn’t go down too well :eek:

    I’ve gotta disagree with this ‘best’ reply Heat ........

    Mine would simply be,

    Does my bum look big in this ?

    It is big ........,,,

    To the point
    Dangerous :eek:
