If it isn't too late, I have a single crystal knob also. Couldn't find another when one of mine broke, so I bought two in the chrome finish. Let me know if you're interested in my (unbroken!) crystal knob.
The handle adapters can be tightened by turning them clockwise and loosened by turning them counterclockwise. If the faucet manifold may need to be lined up parallel behind the wall and moved forward as well. Here is the parts breakdown for your faucet,
hi you 1st need to isolate both hot & cold water supplies to bath.lift the lever up & underneath the lever you will see s screw unscrew it & be careful not let it go down the plug hole, so a good idea at this point is to put in the plug!!!
Once the screw is loosened you will be able to remove the lever.
then there is a cover which will need to be undone & removed seeing as its gold you will have to be careful undoing this as it may be stiff, sometimes a few taps with the endle of a srewdriver handle will loosen it enough so you can remove it. once this is removed you will gain access to the hexagonal part of the cartridge, so yo uwill need to have the appropriate spanner or adjustable spanner. you will need to hold against the tap when undoing it so as the whole tap body doesnt move.once the cartridge is removed the new unit can be fitted in reverse order.it sounds simple but being Gold you have to be careful you dont damage it whilst attempting to remove the old one. Tip put some silicone gtrease around the o rings on the new unit as it will make it easier to remove if you ever have to remove it again?
These are not only long-lived and reliable but also fairly easy to service.

The trim cover must be pried off (sharp knife slid under the edge) and then I think there is first a Phillips head that holds the knob on.
Our Moens always came with the necessary wrench to loosen the slotted nut but I think they are also included in the seal kit you should find at any chain 'home improvement' store. It's a simple stamped 'key' used for removing the nut.
I recall that the kits once had illustrations to guide you.
After cleaning up the cylinder and the piston that carries the seals ('O' rings) I have some silicone grease (not heat sink compound-it's gritty with zinc oxide) I use for reassembly; it makes them feel like new again.
With a gentle twist of the piston, slide the renewed assembly back into the cylinder and reverse your removal steps.
