How do I take apart a moen shower head?

You can remove the head from the shower arm by taking a crescent wrench. Put it on the flat sides of the nut on the showerhead and unscrew it counterclockwise. There is no way to take apart the Moen showerhead. If the reason you want to disassemble the showerhead is to clean it because it is clogged, disassembly is not needed. Just fill a Ziploc bag with a 50-50 solution of vinegar and warm water. Place the bag onto your shower head so it is fully immersed in the solution. Use a rubber band to hold it in place. Let it soak overnight and then take a toothbrush to any of the white scaly matter that might remain.

I don't know if you had the mixing valve out or got it turned around but, try taking the handle off and operate the shower without the handle, in other words, turn the valve so the left side of the valve is now in the up position and just stick handle on and make sure you have your full range and hot and cold water. Two other possiblilities are, if you did not runwater before installing new valve, you may have gotten trash form the lines, plugging your valve. If you can't resolve the problem by mearly turning the mixing valve, you may want to remove it, make sure it's nott plugged and turn it 180 deg:
This is a video on how to remove the valve.

Flow restrictors

Remove the shower head from the arm and look inside the connector on the showerhead. You should see a plastic or metal piece that will either unscrew or need to be pulled out with needle nose pliers. Once that's been removed the flow should be improved.

New House The women is complating that then she shower at any of her bathroom tub shower unit the faucet become cold for a little while on all her Moen chateau faucet. We have change all valve cartrige

The problem is most likely with "the back pressure from the flow restrictor in the showerhead causing the spool in the cartridge to sense a false pressure drop. This is forcing the spool to shift, restricting a full hot water temperature from coming out." Believe it or not, I got this information from Moen. Their solution was to send out a valve without the multi settings of the original and that didn't work very well. I can only tell you that I used an older showerhead without the water saver feature and the valve and cartridge worked fine. The problem your having is with the cartridge/showerhead combination and short of using an older showerhead there is not a satisfactory solution. Maybe your plumber has a better solution.

Hours after I take a shower, the showerhead will start dribbing

No, the showerhead is probably OK. My guess is that the head is relatively level, and the design of the nozzle allows water to pool inside. When you take a hot shower and turn the shower off, it begins to cool. As the shower head cools, a slight vacuum is formed, pulling air up into the showerhead. As you reach equilibrium, water is allowed to discharge as a dribble. This continues until the water has all been displaced. The fix for this is to turn the showerhead to the side, allowing the water to drain more quickly, and allow the air in. Try it.
Best regards, --W/D--

Decreased water flow from Moen shower faucet

I would bet it's not the faucet at all, it's the showerhead. Remove it and look inside the hole, there is probably sediment built up in there.
Just clean it out and reinstall.
