: Turn off the water, remove the handle, remove the chrome cover tube, remove the "U" shaped retainer clip, try to remove the cartridge without damaging the faucet. Call a plumber to remove the cartridge. Insert the new cartridge and put everything back together.
: : My 12-year-old single handle Moen shower faucet leaks. Could someone give me the steps needed to repair? Thanks.
In hard water areas, the cartridge can be hard to remove. If you water is on the softer side, removal will be easier. Like hj mentions, in some cases, it could be difficult and plumbers do carry tools for removal. Terry
