So it looks like all my taps on my Dethleffs are knackered due to a really bad frost spell we had mid December. My fault for not emptying the water out the taps😕
I’ve replaced the kitchen and bathroom taps and all is good but I need advice on the shower (see photo.
We are off to Germany on Saturday and I don’t think we could put up with constant dripping for 10 days.
So I need to know how to strip it and see if I can stop the dripping.

Remove the blue/ red cap and underneath will be a screw.
If you mean the black mounting, no idea but probably some screws somewhere ?
Edit, may depend where it's leaking ?

Thanks, I was just wanting the head piece of tap to begin with. I thought it would be under there but didn't want to pluck them out just in case.

Its leaking right underneath head part

Red/blue bit out (coverts drain so it doesn’t disappear when it flies out) that will show screw. Undo screw, remove lever. That will show big nut, without much room to get on it. If lucky you may be able to “nip“ this up and your drip will stop. If not then undo big nut and that will release cartridge, the release will happen very quickly if you have still got water pressure behind it, so best to release it before playing 👍🏻

I've taken the top part off and it's dripping right at the bottom of the casing.
I've tried some bathroom silicone to try and seal it so ill see what happens when it dries. If I can reduce the dripping just to get by for the next 10 days until we get back then I can strip it down properly.

The bathroom tap was cracked at the bottom of the spout.
