Smile Faucet Handle hard to turn

Have a KWC single lever kitchen faucet, the handle has become stiff and hard to turn hot to cold and vice versa. Can anyone suggest a fix for this?

Turn the water off, take the faucet apart, buy only OEM replacement parts for the brand name of the faucet and use plumber's grease on all moving parts and fine threads on the faucet when putting back together.

This will solve the problem with the hard turning faucet.

How did that work out for you? We have the same problem and can't figure out how to get the retaining ring off to replace the cartridge.
