    It appears that in this case, replacement parts were not required (possibly loose handle attachment screw).

    But, it should be noted that if parts are necessary, most if not all Moen (and many others) faucets have a lifetime warranty (generally limited to defective functional parts, not cosmetic issues). If you can wait a few days for shipping time, they will send you new parts.

There is a set screw at the base of the handle on the back side, could be alen or regular screw driver type. This link will help you find it.

SOURCE: The handle is loose

Remove the plastic red and blue insert or what ever color yours is under the handle in the front. Tighten the set screw with an allen wrench. Be careful not to over tighten or the screw will break off.

Hi, There should be an easier way here. With the handle off, look down along the valve stem to where it goes on into the valve body. You should see a six-sided nut surrounding the valve stem. This nut is the packing gland. It allows the valve to function without leaking. You should be able to tighten the packing gland and take the wobble out of the valves. It's a trade off though, the tighter tha packing gland, the less the valve wobbles, but the valve will get harder to operate. You'll have to make your own judgement call as to how tight you want it.
Best regards, --W/D--
