hello, is it possible to fix the rubber seal on this kitchen sink faucet valve or the only option is to replace. These valve leaks when I try to shut them off, if completely open then no leak.

Question 1 - Please can you tell if these valves rubber seals can be taken off and can be replaced.













Question 2 If it cant be fixed with new rubber seal, then can you tell me size to buy for ne replacement ones?



Question 3 - why the 3/8 pipe in photo below is not connected directly like other one?






Regards

Take the saddle valves off, they're causing too much pressure
yes, thats what I am thinking to get rid of complete pipe and connect 3/8 directly to valve, so because of saddle valve the pipe was not installed directly into valve?

and how do I fix leaking valve on hot line as well, there is no saddle valve on hot line.

thankyou

Just take a screwdriver and unscrew the saddle valves, thats all you gotta do. Your pressure will balance between hot and cold side once you do it
sorry, i am newbie into plumbing so excuse me,
if i remove saddle valve wont there be a hole afterwards in the pipe?

I've seen some cut out the bad part and attach a bicycle tube with hose clamps. A DIY approved method.
You having fun,,,,,,,,,,,,,👀
