The solution to this problem was to literally saw the handles off. There was nothing on the undermount to loosen like sanray suggested. Could not get the clips off no matter what. Could not even see them. This faucet sucks. Replacing it with a Delta which I hope never gives me this much trouble!!

The nuts located on the underside of counter need to be loosened in order to releive the pressure off of the C clips and then you will be able to pry them off.

    What exactly are you trying to do, remove the faucet or repair it.

    I assume we are talking about either a mini widespread Moen lavatory faucet or a standard moen widespread faucet.

When I turn on the cold or hot water sink faucet water leaks out from the top of the cold water faucet . I took the outer casking off and can not figure how to remove the stem. I removed the ring but...


if you have the ring removed, screw the handle back on and pull up on it,, your leak is probably due to a worn , torn , "O" ring,, and Moen parts are found at most hardware stores ,, ( including Home depot , and Lowes) On Moen faucets , Look for the dent in the flange that squares off,, where that square is on the ring, is where the retainer ring is that holds the faucet in place ..its a "C" clip with a head on it, remove this ring and the assembly should come out , be sure and use plumbers grease when replacing the O rings,, they last much longer that way

My waltec bathroom sink was leaking now that i messed with it ,its running by itself how do i fix this problem


It would help to know where is was leaking and what you "messed with"?

But in general, the idea is to replace the washers.
To do that, first turn off the water under the sink.
Then you first remove the handle on the leaking side.
There is often a small metal or plastic cover over a phillips screw.
Then remove the metal cap around the handle stem by unthreading or lifting up.
Then you can remove the valve by turning it as if to make the water go on.
It will have a washer on the bottom, held on with a screw.
Remove the screw, get a new washer, and then replace.

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Can't remove moen bathroom faucet assembly to replace it. can't figure out how to seperate it from the sink...


If you are dealing with the type of Moen faucet I think you are, what you need to do is remove the pop-up rod. do this by loosening the locking bolt on the linkage under the sink and pulling the rod out from the top. Once the rod is out you will need to find the correct size allen wrench which goes into the center hole. there is a mounting bolt in there that needs to be unscrewed. Easy when you know how.

Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet


After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.
