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.

you will have to replace the ball assembly with a repair kit
1 turn the water off under the sink (hot and cold)
remove the handle ( you may need an allen head wrench to remove a hex screw or you may have to take a channel lock pliar and unscrew achrome
nut over the ball mechanism
after the handle comes off there is usually some type of lock nut that you must remove to remove the ball mechanism
remove the ball (usually chrome or brass(ther are usually little springs and rubber washers under ball
take ball and washer to ACe or lowes and match the pieces (usually sold as a kit
follow directions and installl
turn water on and pat yo!ur self on the back !

hold the handle and twist the piece below that doesnt turn, anti-clockwise, it should unsrew and the handle should pull off.

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

SOURCE: handle won't stay up
I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.
