Yes use that funny spanner, the tap comes loose clockwise.
I use small rat tail, bottle brushes and star san in a large SS bowl. If they are really gunked up use PBW first.
Usually I find little bits of gunk inside where the tap handle fits the sliding part.
They are easy to clean, takes about five minutes.
I now use a spare 9 litre keg full of water to fill the beer lines after I have finished drinking for the night, then hook the beer lines back to the beer keg. The first pull of the next session half fills a small glass with this water.
If you can leave the water filled keg on line, then you have a ready supply of soda water.
cheers
