Did you manage to get the handle off? I've got the exact same problem. Grub screw came out, but handle is still firmly attached.

:welcomeuhm: Best not to dig up a four year old post . I have split your post from the old thread.

As I understand it, a Franke monobloc tap with a drip and the handle won't easily part from the main body?

Problem solved. Unscrewed the valve cover as far as I could to prise the handle a few mm, then levered it with a screwdriver. Used quite a bit of WD40 as well. It's a Franke Eiger tap.
