Once the clip is removed it should pull out but they can be stubborn sometimes. You might want to clamp the stem with a Visegrips and yank away.

Moen 2 handle bathroom faucet is leaking out of base of the left handle


There is a plastic retainer not with two tabs used for removal. You will need a removal tool to get this retainer off. Any plumbing supply that carries Moen should have this tool.
After removing the retainer nut, the cartridge pulls right out. Good luck!

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

What is wrong with my single handle shower fixture in that it does not give out enough hot water


This is a common problem with Moen shower valves and fairly simple to fix. The pressure balancing cartridge is sticking inside. You need to remove the cartridge and clean it with white vinegar. The problem appears in valves that are not used very often - like in a guest room shower. The impurities in the water leave a varnish-like residue that causes the element to lock up and restrict hot water flow. If you are the original owner Moen will send you a free replacement cartridge but cleaning the one you have will do the trick. Once it's working be sure to run the hot water at least once a week. Here's how to fix it:
1. Turn off water supply to the house or at the PEX panel if you have one.
2. Remove handle by loosening the set screw at the bottom of the handle and pulling off.
3. Remove escutcheon plate by removing 2 screws on the face.
4. Remove escutcheon tube surrounding the valve by pulling with a needle nose pliers.
5. Using an awl or small screwdriver pry the retaining clip up and remove - DON'T DROP IT behind the tile!!
6. Using a pliers, pull out the cartridge. If it won't budge you can try some WD-40 or PB Blaster and if that doesn't work you'll need to buy a "Moen Cartridge Puller" (about $13 @ Home Depot) and it will come right out.
7. Shake the cartridge. If it does NOT rattle you've found the problem. Soak it in white vinegar for 15 minutes and try shaking it again and repeat till you hear the pressure balance element move back and forth. A shot of PB Blaster also helps.
8. Once the element is moving freely you can reassemble everything by working in reverse - don't forget to reinstall the retaining clip or the cartridge will become a missile! TIP: To prevent dropping the clip tie a string through the hole in the top and tape the other end to the wall. If it slips you can just pull it up. Also, spray a little PB Blaster in the valve body before inserting the cartridge to make it easier to seat it.
Hope this helps!

Moen single stem bathroom basin tap (25 years old). Trying to remove cartridge to grease it or replace it. Have removed handle and retaining clip. Pulled hard but can't shift it. Don't want to break...


You are on the right track. You have to use some force when pulling the stem from the faucet. Your replacement cartridge should have a little black or whit cap. that is inserted on top of the cartridge and by turning the cap will help loosen the whole cartridge

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.

Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet


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.
