Question

How do I remove spout bonnet RP40371 from body RP40370 on a model 187 series faucet?

The tapered profile of the bonnet does not allow for a strap wrench to get purchase on it - as you apply torque it just slides north onto the spout assembly. Alternatively, can I get the spout assembly off of the bonnet to access the o rings without access to the retaining clip, which resides in the bonnet? It seems that if I just whack it northward, I may break the retaining clip, which I can't access at this point.

I just experienced the same frustration with the tapered neck on the bonnet. The solution came from my son when he suggested using duck tape. So I wrapped several 1" strips on the upper part of the neck in order to make it approximately the same diameter as the rest of the bonnet. That gave me enough surface area for the strap wrench to get a good even grip, and after some serious torque the bonnet finally broke free! From there it was all downhill and after replacing the O rings my faucet is now leak free.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for your question. The bonnet should unscrew from the base by hand. However, over time there may be mineral buildup causing it to stick. You can try soaking a rag with a half and half white vinegar and water solution and wrapping it around the bonnet for about 15 -30 minutes using a rubber band. A rubber jar opener should also help grip the bonnet. Once the bonnet is unscrewed, you can lift the spout straight up to remove it.

Thanks,
Jon

Question

Broken part?

Leaking at the base. Is the round base of the part solid at the bottom, or does it have a break between one of the upright arms to allow for install? Mine separates at the base and I can't tell if it is cracked, or supposed to be that way. I'm going to replace the O rings for sure, but would order this if needed.

Hi Robert, Thank you for your question. The RP21463 spout retainer is not solid all the way around the base. The split allows the spout retainer to be opened wide enough for installation or removal. Replacing the o-rings should solve your issue.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Henry,

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP21463 is a spout retainer that will fit inside the spout.

Thanks.

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. The RP21463 spout retainer should not be an issue with regard to the leak. The RP22934 o-rings would be the part that you will want to replace.

Hi Nick, Thank you for your question. To remove the RP21463 spout retainer you will want to press down on the retainer and slowly pry apart the bottom of the retainer to release the part from the faucet.

Question

Classic 2 handle waterfall kitchen faucet (2176-LHP-H24-A24 (chrome)

The spout assembly lifts upward and off the base when I turn on the water. I have removed the aerator and also tried replacing the #2 o rings and neither one of these actions resolved the problem. On close inspection, the inside of the spout retainer ( part # RP 21463) has # 2 raised rectangular shoulders that align with the spout bonnet ( part# RP21825A). These #2 "shoulders" appear to be worn and I guess that these raised areas are intended to hold the spout in place when turning on the water? Please advise as to your opinion as to what to do to fix the problem. Thanks,

Hi David, Thank you for your question. You are correct that the spout retainer helps hold the spout into place on your model 2176-LHP-H24-A24 faucet. Replacing the worn RP21463 should help solve the issue, although there is usually some movement on the hi arc spout when the water is turned on.
Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for your question. The spout bonnet (Delta part #RP21464) would first need to be removed. At that point, the spout can then be detached from the retainer. Below is a link to the maintenance & installation guide for the 174-WHWF, which includes a parts breakdown.
