Question about Price Pfister Plumbing
This is a 26 series with separate handle for water control. The existing retaining ring is plastic with outer threads that secure the bonnet. If I use a wrench on the retainer ring the threads will be damaged and the bonnet will not screw back on. Price Pfister sent a new cartridge with a metal retainer ring. Can I use a pipe wrench or large pliers to remove the existing retainer ring and not worry about damaging the threads? It looks like there may be a special tool like a large spline with a hole in the center to correctly remove the plastic retaining ring. The metal replacement ring takes a large crescent wrench to tighten and the bonnet looks like it will screw on over the metal ring. If I don't have to be concerned about damaging the plastic ring then this project is less than 5 minutes. If damaging the plastic ring puts the sink out of order waiting for replacement parts then it will be 3-5 days in the outside dog house.

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.

SOURCE: Eljer slantback lavatory faucet
use baking soda to remove the corrosion mix a little in apaper cup and brush on with toth brush
I do not have a clear picture but can you not put two screw drivers under the lip of the chrome and pry up
One other thought is to tap the top adapter with a hammer to see if it will break loose

There is a bracket that slides between the threaded shaft and the bottom of the sink. There is usually a nut which is tightened up against this bracket. When this nut is loosened, the bracket will slide out. Of course, you first have to unfasten the two water supply lines. Once the bracket is removed, the two water lines which are made into the faucet are gently bent and the whole thing is removed from the top of the sink. Hope this helps.
