How to Fix a Leaking Sink Faucet

My Moen faucet is leaking. I tried fixing it, but couldn't undo the plastic piece to reach the washer.  Are there any special tools I can use?  Any other advice on getting this to stop leaking? 

The Money Pit Answer

Your best bet is to review Moen's online troubleshooting tips, which include an extensive section for faucet repair.  Keep in mind that disassembling plumbing requires special tools you might not have.  Also, be sure that if you're going to replace a part, you use parts recommended for your exact faucet.  Generic faucet replacement parts might look identical, but fine differences can cause incompatibility, which could lead to continued problems.
