Hi All,
I've looked at a couple of threads and haven't found one that's for a Hymer b584 arrangement. One was close but said the mirror must come out to remove sink to change the faucet but mine isn't close to the mirror.
There is no room to work in situ, has anyone changed out the faucet on a Hymer B584 2001 model?....and is there enough waggle space to remove sink?

I had to change the tap on our 2001 B584, didn’t need to remove sink or mirror. I removed the two shelves and side from inside the cupboard under the sink, that gives access to under the tap, remove the pipes from the spigots (there’s a pin that locks the sprigots( photo) in but mine would move and I had to cut mine to get them off the spigot)
Then disconnect micro switch wire and undue nut underneath.
Also when I did this I found a lot of space wasted behind panel, so I cut a hole behind tilting cupboard.

Why do you need to remove the tap. Also if new taps needed they are 27mm but I ordered wrong (33mm)and had to enlarge hole in sink.

Thanks Manic,
It's cracked and leaking, removing the panels in the storage section will give some space but it still looks very tight in there to use a tool....so removing the basin is not the way to go?

I wouldn’t think about removing the sink, that would way harder as it goes under the mirror and other thing.
You only need a screwdriver to remove jubilee clips, remove pipes.
I didn’t need a spanner to undo the nut, I held it by hand and turned tap above.
If it’s the spout leaking you can change that on its own or if not split I re sealed mine with sikaflex.

I removed the shelf and panel from the unit and it looks more possible now, although very tight, I'm thinking of removing the basin trap and discharge pipe for more room ?

Yes it is tight but do able, i didn’t remove the waste because I didn’t want to disturb the pipe joint. I removed the jubilee clips and carefully cut the pipes as I couldn’t get them to pull of the spigots and I couldn’t get the pin to move that locks spigots in( you can see pin in your photo)
This does mean replacing the pipe but that’s easy to get.

Can you undo the nut and lift tap clear of the sink top to access the locking pin or the jubilee clips from above?
As above said hold the nut and turn tap quarter turn to get it started then unscrew the nut

When I did both my sink and basin taps, the nut would go past the pipes and I had to do it from below.

If you need to get a good grip on the big nut......use that grippy material they use to line draws to stop rattles. Also good for undoing jar tops.

Hi manic,
I'm waiting for it to be delivered, I managed to get the original blue colour and should tackle it next week ? ( £125 Inc delivery)
I'll post the outcome as soon as I've completed it.

Hi guys.
I fitted the tap a couple of days ago, unfortunately Travelworld sent a chrome tap although they assured me they could get blue for my Hymer B584 model?
In all fairness when I spoke with them, they explained an inexperienced sales person was responsible for missing the small print? And when I pointed out that I was prepared to pay a premium for the blue tap (£115) but could have bought a chrome tap locally for half their price, the manager gave me a full refund and offered me the tap at £72, which I thought good policy on his part and accepted. That being said...I would have bought a white tap locally if they had informed me blue was not available as there is no chrome anywhere else in the bathroom...but hey! The jobs done and I'll get used to it.
Speaking of which...the job itself was easier than expected after removing shelves and the door and all comments came in handy, also slit the pipes to remove them, should advise anyone from trying to remove them any other way. (have two 12" lengths of new pipe ready)
Thanks to everyone for their helpful comments, I am a bit of a worrier so your encouraging advise always helps to clear the picture.
