Moen shower faucet valve stem replacement
Posted by tom on January 10, 19100 at 19:30:46:
I've bought valve stem replacement kit, but the abbreviated installation instructions don't give me a clue as to how to remove the stop tube. There is a white plastic plate around the stop tube labeled to be flush with the finished wall (of course the plate is actually behind the tile wall and can be slid back and forth from the piping to the cermaic tiles.) The hole left by the ceramic tiles is samller than the diameter of the white plate. I believe this plate is blocking access to the retainer clip for the stem; or am I supposed to be able to get to the clip from inside the stop tube?? What's the deal?

banging my head against the (shower) wall,
Tom
