Many faucets come with cartridges.If yours is a Moen, you can remove the handle,remove the tube behind the handle,pull out the u-shapped clipRemove the cartridge.
I have a shower with a single tear drop shaped acrylic pull handle. I have a leak problem. When I push the handle in, water continues to leak from the faucet. Any suggestions?
That fits the description, once I remove that, do I have to replace it with a new one?
yes, get a replacement cartridge and reassemble. You should be good for a numberof years.
