In my opinion, the factory plumbing fixtures are disposable junk. If I were you, I would go buy a new, cheap residential fixture at Lowes or Home Depot. Even the cheapest one they have will be 100 times better than what Keystone puts in.

Push on the "plug" with something like a phillips screwdriver, etc while pulling up on the faucet handle and it will come off. No set screws are involved.

After you get the handle off go ahead and remove the entire faucet from the vanity and get one from Lowes, Home Depot, etc to replace it because it is JUNK. I replaced ours with a single handled Moen and it works great (and QUIET). Dispose of original faucet any way you prefer.

We had the same issue and the dealer replaced the fixture for us under warranty.

Ditto to Overlord and webeflltime. OEM plumbing fixtures are JUNK. Simply replace with big box store (Lowes, HomeDepot) and move on

I've been pretty happy with the Dura faucets in our rig. No plastic, all metal and very well made. I replaced the ball parts in one of our vanity faucets, which I think was leaking due to some grit that got in when we didn't have a filter connected. The parts looked exactly like those from a Delta faucet. We full time and all the faucets have held up very well. Parts are available directly from Dura, http://www.durafaucet.com/
The little plastic plug, which is red and blue, will come out using a sharp edged tool like a knife, and then you will find the set screw to remove the handle. Possibly, a little plumbers grease will cure the squeaky handle.
