Is this the single handle model? if so simply remove handle, plate, then pull the clip out with a pair of needle nose (after turning main water off).
the valve assembly will pull staright out with moderate force. sounds like one of the small o rings got pinched so it may take a good pull. 
make sure to look inside valve housing for foriegn debre. clean it out good. i like to turn the water on for a few seconds before i put the new valve in to blow out any stuff that might cause problems.

The moen began to leak over time now i cant turn the water for


Call moen and give them your model no. they will send you a new cartridge free of charge. if you can't wait local stores like lowes will have them. Turn off your main water shut off valve and take off handle, then with some pliers take off brass ring, the cartridge will pull out. First notice the notch it rests in and notice where the hot water adjustment disc is. Assemble the new one the same way, put some vasolene on orings and reassemble. hope this helps.

Moen one control shower faucet is leaking hot water


Try replacing the cartridge first.That's your best bit . Next would be the whole valve. Hopefully, it's just the cartridge.

Yes you remove the clip by pulling up  on it.  make sure water is off.  then you can replace the cartridge by puling it out.  make sure that you put new cartridge back in the same way you took it out there will be a H and a C on the cartridge.

Moen shower/tub faucet


hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

Make sure that you did not pinch an O ring seal when you were installing the cartridge. If so replace O ring. when installing new cartridge try putting a little Vaseline on all the O rings. It will seal better. It is rare but you could have purchased a defective cartridge. Never buy a cartridge if the package was opened because maybe someone just needed the O ring that is making your faucet leak :-)

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot


Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
