mixer tap problem

Hi folks - wondering if anyone can help get my cold tap working again....

It's an 'Edsvik' Ikea mixer tap. http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/80031842/. I've been told to strip it down and try changing the washer

Problem is, I don't seem to be able to strip it down any further than unscrewing the tap. Inside was what I can only describe as a miniture bicycle clip, that looked a bit mangled, so I've replaced that and it did start working again for a couple of days, but then no water again now. It looks to me exactly the same as the tap on the hot water side. I can't see any problems in that itself, but can't figure out how to strip it down further.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Basically there is no water at all coming from the cold tap. The hot tap's working fine (though not sure if this connected, but the hot water is cloudy compared to usual and other taps in the house).

Thanks in advance:)
