Replacing Cartridge-valve kitchen faucet

My kitchen faucet is dripping now, and I'm thinking that I need to replace the cartridge-valve. I once saw a show many moons ago talking about how to do this, but I don't remember how now, and don't know where to start to look for intructions. Could you please help me? Thanks!

Go to 'youtube' and search what you're looking for, then watch a few demonstrations.

Replacement parts/cartridges usually come with instructions. Take note of the brand and model of faucet with you to the hardware store to match up replacement parts.

Turn off water under the sink and release the pressure through the faucet.

Disassemble handle, replace cartridge, assemble handle, turn on water, test your work.

No leaky - time for a beer.
