Moen makes a stem removal tool that angages the 2 ears on the outer portion of the stem. You can order from Moen:
http://www.moen.com/moen/cartridge-removal-tool-for-1200-or-1225-or-1222-cartridges/_/R-COMMERCIAL%3A104421

Or your local home center or hardware store should have one in stock if they carry Moen parts.

SOURCE: I am installing the valve housing for a moen

No...the (cotter pin) is a retaining piece for the cartridge. If you remove it the cartridge can blow out under pressure.

How do you remove a cartiarigde from moen shower body (single handle)


There is a special tool that yo can use to remove an old and stuck moen cartridge and they can found at your hardware store. Now before you remove the cartridge be sure to remove a small brass or copper pin located at the top of the stem. you will see a groove in the stem cover where the pin is located. once the pin is removed hookup the puller and remove stem. sometime you are able just to grab the stem with a pair of pliers and give a good pull and twist to get it out. don't pull to hard to damage the plumbing in the wall. good luck and I hope I was able to help. As always, TURN OFF THE WATER FIRST...

Moen Single Handle Shower faucet can't get cylinder out


New moen cartridges for tub/showers come with a handy white plastic tool to aid in old cartridge removal. One end is squared off for a wrench, the other is slotted to place over the old cartridge in the wall after the clip has been removed. Place onto cartridge and use a wrench to turn several times back and forth. Remove , grab the stem with pliers and give a tug. You want either service part #1225B (pull/push to turn on) or #1222 (just turn knob counterclockwise to turn on. Get the replacement before you proceed.

On my Moen shower facet


There is a small "U" type clip that comes down in front area to hold it in, I assume that has been removed. The new cartridge should have come with a small tool (usually plastic) that you put over the cartridge, push it in, and turn the body of the cartridge, and it should start to ride up on higher brass sleeve and start to pull itself out. If you look at vertical part of cartridge, it is sitting back in on low spot of the sleeve. That tool, or a pair of strong needle nose pliers,needs to be against the sides of the vertical part of the cartridge, in such a way that when you rotate the cartridge, it rides up on higher part of sleeve, and pulls itself outward.

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

How do I pull a moen single lever kitchen cartridge out that is old and stuck?I removed the horseshoe shaped clip. When I pull the valve stem, it doesn't budge.


there is a little plastic tool that comes with a new cartridge....you use it to turn the cartridge back and forth....breaking the seal that has formed between the rubber on the outside of the cartridge and the inner wall of the valve. After doing that you should be able use a pair of channel locks to pull the cartridge out.

Removing a moen cartridge


Remove the retaining clip and then take a pair of plier or channel locks to grab the stem and work that stem side to side gently as you pull up or out.

Help again....


Oops, Try taking a large drill bit and drilling out the center of the cartridge and then trying to "pick" out the remaining pieces. If all else fails, you will will have to replace the faucet. I wouldn't go back with a cartridge style faucet in the future. I have come across difficult ones in the past including my mothers own faucet! I replaced hers with a Delta. American Standard makes a good faucet these days as well that won't break the bank! Hopefully this helps.
