Question about Plumbing
You need to remove the moen cartridge. first, remove handle. at the top of stem, there is a U shaped retainer clip. it hard to see,use a small knife blade to catch the closed side of clip and slide clip out. once clip is removed, you should be able to pull cartridge out with a twist and pull motion. if it wont come out,that way dont pull to the point where you brake cartridge. that means replacing faucet. in extreme cases, you ca buy a moen stem puller for about $15. once stem i out simply coat with stem grease and replace cartridge. when replacing retaining clip, keep a pushing in pressure on end of stem to allow clip to slide into place. it iseasier to do than it sounds

ouch sadly im sure it was pricy to have him out so my suggestion would be to call him back and have him take off the price of what he charged you or have him fix it for no charge could be just need some plumbers putty around the faucet to stop a little water that may seep threw under the faucet good luck

shut-off the water, pull the handle and the spout. change the 2 "O"ring and make sure the spout body has no dirt in them. apply some the plumbing grease bewteen the spout body. put everything back.

there should be a removable "button" on the faucet base below the handle. under there, there should be a set screw. loosen the screw, remove the handle. now u can adjust the base, collar, etc. to ur liking...don't forget to reassemble everything the same way u removed them.

Testimonial: "that was one reason I was looking for a diagram to show EXATLY how everything goes back !! will try your suggestion thanks"
Hot water line connected to left side of faucet? Did you replace tap set, or just cartridge? Cartridge may be out 180 degrees.
