Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet
You need to purchase a replacement cartridge before trying to remove a defective Moen cartridge. Always buy genuine Moen. If your valve turns on and off with a pull/push action you need part number 1225B, otherwise you need part number 1222. The 1200 cartridge will work in lieu of the 1225B but is more expensive and no longer used in Moen valves. There is a tool that comes with these cartridges which looks a bit like a white plastic cap.with notches on one end and a square head on the other.
Once the clip has been removed the only thing keeping the cartridge in the vslve is old sticky lubricant. Place the tool over the cartridge end and rotate as necessary until the notches are fully engaged and it no longer rotates. Using pliers or a wrench over the squared end, twist the tool back and forth several times. Remove the tool, and using pliers, pull the old cartridge out. Put the tool on the replacement part and insert it back into the valve. Lightly tap on the squared end to make sure the new part is completely seated, then use the squared end again to turn the cartridge as necessary to align for the clip to be reinstalled.
