My 2 year old factory is leaking a little while the lever is in the downward position. I would like to change the group gaskets as well but can not find any instructions on you tube regarding the plastic sleeve removal.
Some vendors sell the kits which include the sleeve removal tool and some don't. Can anyone guide me on this ?

Thanks

I have always used a take-out chop stick cut to fit into the two rectangular noches in the sleeve.  Any stick with the right diameter will do, I just like the cheap chop sticks because I trust that they will give before doing any real damage to the sleeve.
