Forum Title: outdoor spigot leaking
Hi and please excuse my amateur post here This is leaking from the spigot area, not the handle. However, I would like to replace all internals as I'm sure the handle area will be leaking next. I have removed the top nut, near the handle, yet I'm confused how to proceed...should all the interals pull out after the nut is unscrewed? I cant seem to get anything to pull out once the nut is unscrewed. Confused and frustrated. I appreciate any advice you may have.

The large nut needs to be removed to replace the washer. Be sure to use two wrenches. One to hold back and the other to remove the nut.

Is there a shut off valve on the other side of that wall? Or one that you know of that leads to the hose bib? If you can shut the water off to it, I'd just replace the whole thing. It should just unthread if you are able to free it from the coating on that wall.

I wouldn't count on that there is a good chance that it's soldered. Trying to unscrew the hose bib could twist the copper off.
