Thread: Leaking Moen Bathtub valve

Threaded View

  1. #1

    Default Leaking Moen Bathtub valve

    I've had a lot of experience in changing valves or replacing the washers or o-rings on traditional bathtub faucets where there are separate hot and cold valves.

    I've got Moen combination hot/cold valve where you rotate the valve. Water is leaking out of the faucet into the tub, which tells me that I've got an internal leak due to a bad washer or o-ring.

    I've taken apart the outer components, and cannot figure out how to proceed. I'm hoping the the entire does not have to be unsoldered, but that appears to be the case.

    Here is a picture:

    Any suggestions on what must be done? Thanks ...

    I found this on your site - I assume its the solution. The brass u clip is missing in my picture as I had pulled it out. So it sounds like I pull on the stem outward real hard with pliers ... I assume I tap back in with a rubber mallet ...
