1. If it's "leaking" from the body then, the O-Rings between the body of the faucet got gunked up with minerals from your water. This interferes with the seal.
The answer is to take some grit cloth/very fine sandpaper and clean the inside of the spout body. Wipe clean. I would also suggest replacing the O-Rings on the faucet body, but at the very least wipe the O-rings and faucet body clean.
THEN: lubricate the inside of the spout body AND the O-Rings with silicone grease. It's translucent and readily available and the only thing I would ever use for a faucet repair. NOT plumber's grease, NOT WD-40.
Reassemble and enjoy.

2. If it's dripping, the you need a new cartridge. You can get them for FREE from the hardware store if you have the old cartridge to trade them. The problem is that Moen cartridges are water-sealed into place and you need a special tool to break that water seal. The special tool (just a tiny piece of specifically shaped plastic, really) comes, you guessed it - with the new cartridge.
Two possible solutions: a) bite the bullet and just buy the cartridge (~$25) or buy a Moen cartridge puller, usually available from the hardware store as well for about the same price. Ask, they might even lend you one.
The point of whichever tool you end up with is to rotate the cartridge itself inside the faucet body to break the water seal so that you can pull it out with a set of pliers. There will be a retaining clip to pull out as well.

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

    Installed a new moen adler tub faucet with shower diverter. When you turn on the shower water continues to come out of the tub faucet. Is there an adjustment or is it just the way it is??


    Our Moen always dribbled a little since the diverter is metal-to-metal and doesn't really have any seal. The loss shouldn't be a stream though.

    Disconnect/reconnect drain part of MOEN (Adler) bathroom faucet CAL84502. I'm changing the entire basin and reinstalling the MOEN faucet system but can't find my original installation instructions.


    Should be 3 wing pipe nuts. One at basin base, and one on each end of you elbow. They should all turn counter-clockwise to remove. The one on the basin base likely and commonly has pipe thread tape on it.

    I installed a Moen Adler faucet. It will not shut


    You may just have a piece of sediment lodged in the cartridge from when the water was shut off during installation. Carefully remove the cartridge and turn the water on to flush out any obstructions. re install the cartridge and test.
