Loose Kitchen Taps

Does anyone know how to get at the base of the kitchen taps to tighten them up? Is it just a case of removing four screws around the bowl and lifting it out?
Any help thankfully received.

Taps

Not sure of your vehicle, so can't help on that one.

Ours kept on vibrating loose on every trip.

So I used thread lock on it and they have not come away since!

Good Luck.

I intend to use some sort of locking when I can get at it.
The bowl and taps sit above the fridge and I sure don't want to have to remove the fridge to tighten it up.

I'll just go ahead and remove the screws and possibly then undo the sinkwaste.

Well I removed the sink, turned out to be a doodle. Tightened up the tap but didn't use any locking this time. See how long it lasts.

I did find that it will be easy to fit a fan to aid cooling the fridge - another one of those chores to do when I have a bit more time, along with solar panel and improved reversing camera.
