    Remove the plastic retainer Most you remove with a screw driver prying toward the center, and then pull out the whole Cartridge  ,
    take it to the parts place and match it up for a new one. Is it not like that?

If it is a ball cartridge then it should just pop out with a flat head. This is of course after you unscrew the metal cover off of it.

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    I have a two-handle Delta faucet that drips.  With both handles turned completely to off, the faucet drips at a about 1 drip every 15 seconds


    sounds like you need to replace the valve seats. if you shut the water off and remove the handles you will see the valves. you have to remove them and under that you should see these little black things. they come out but have springs under them so be careful. the black things are the valve seats. i would start by replacing them

    Replace the seal on the 470 DST single handle pull out faucet


    Turn the water off at the faucet, remove the handle and the retaining nut that is apart of the trim. You will see where you can use a wrench to remove it. The ball assembly will come right out and you can replace the washers right below it. Put it back together and if needed, tighten the tension ring that is on the retaining nut (usually grey or white in color) so it won't leak water around the ball stem. Good luck.

    Kitchen sink keeps dripping...how and what do I need to do to stop the dripping


    Is this a single handle faucet or a double handle? If it's a single handle, you have to turn the water off then remove the handle. The set screw for this should be under a little plastic plug under the handle near the base of the handle. After you remove the handle, remove the housing cap to expose the valve ball. Under the valve ball are 2 small circular washers and springs. Pull them out and replace them. If it is a cartridge style faucet like a Moen, then you remove the u shaped retaining ring and pull the cartridge out.

    If it is a double handle faucet, remove the handle and using a pair of pliers or a crestent wrench remove the stem. You will find the washer at the base of the stem held on by a screw. It could also be a washerless stem and in that case you will need to replace the whole stem.

    If you have anymore questions, just respond to the post and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

    Dripping faucet


    Moen is a cartridge style unit. They make two different cartridges that you can buy at Home Depot. Turn the water off under the sink and then remove the handle. You will see the the cartridge. It has a U shaped retaining clip that pulls out. Once you remove it, then take a pair of pliers and pull the cartridge out. Take it up to HD and match the one you have. The new one will slide right back in and you will reverse the process.
