How to Remove 2-Handle Glacier Bay Bath Faucet Lever Handles  

There two ways to remove the lever handles from a two-handle Glacier Bay bath faucet. The Glacier Bay Tea Pot faucet with lever handle uses a conventional handle screw. New Glacier Bay bath faucets use a setscrew to hold them in place.

Glacier Bay Bathroom Faucets with Lever Handle Setscrews   

1.       Find the setscrew hole under the lever of the handle. In some cases, there may be a small cap or plug covering the setscrew porthole. The Glacier Bay setscrew cover cap may be red, blue or the same color as the Glacier Bay faucet handle.

2.       Remove the small cover plug with your fingers or a small knife. Caution—use knives carefully, you could injure yourself and/or scratch and permanently damage the faucet handles finish.

3.       Insert a 3/32nd inch or 2.5mm Allen or hex wrench into the hole. The setscrew is located approximately half way into the center of the Glacier Bay faucet’s lever handle.

4.       Turn the setscrew to the left, or counter clockwise to loosen it. You do not need to remove the setscrew to remove the faucet handle. Unscrew it just enough to lift the lever handle off the faucet. If the setscrew is corroded and difficult to turn, soak a washcloth in vinegar and wrap it around the handle. Let it soak 20 to 30 minutes, and then try removing the setscrew again. If you can find a way to squirt the vinegar directly onto the setscrew, it will speed up the process.

5.       Remove the index screw cover by popping it out from the top of the faucet handle with your fingers. If it is hard to remove, pry up on the button gently with a credit card or other dull plastic instrument. The index button will be marked with a “C” or an “H” signifying the left or right faucet handle.

6.       Unscrew the Glacier Bay lever handles retaining screw with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. Turn the screw to the left to remove.

7.       Lift the handle up and off the faucet stem.
