Leaking water shut off handles

Ten years ago we had our house completely replumbed. Two of the blue handled shut off valves in the basement are leaking below the nut. I've never replaced these and was wondering how?

Shouldn't need to replace them. Sounds like you just need to replace the string packing around the stem. Turn off water. Remove nut around stem. Repack.
