    You would need to remove and replace the cartridges. You don't mention the brand, whether single or double handle. Do a Google search on the brand, model of your faucet for instructions on removing the cartridges.

    yes😂 It depends on the age of your home. Some faucets just need new washers. However u probably need to go to Home Depot oryour neighborhood small hardwood store. Get some plumber's thread. You will need to wrap then replace the nut - possibly. Use that time to scrub off scum. It will be as good as new. U r going to need the proper tools to take the screws off. -- Maralyn "Smittie" Lewis. PS To be safe, turn off the water sources in your house unless you have added turn off valves going directly to the area you are fixing - 😫- or u will have A WET MESS!
