If you dont you can …gently tap… on the handles and try wobbling them off. Even easier is a tool called a handle puller-ask at your local hardware store-relativley inexpensive My question to you is if youre having diffaculty removing the handles what do you intend to do once the hadles are off. Perhaps calling a plumber is your best bet.
