Ricardo Rivera: can you get away by just replacing the O rings ?
Dorothy Jean Thompson: Thank you sooo much! All 3 of our bathroom faucet's were leaking unless we
turned the hot water off, and would have to turn it back on EVERY time we
needed to use it, very annoying. Did that for the last few months till I
came across your video! We found generic ones at Home Depot for $15 each.
Almost bought new faucet's so I'm glad I seen your video. Saved me a bunch
Rick Smith: I went to home depot today. They sell the tool for removing a Moen
cartridge. It sells for $13. It works like a gear puller.
Doug Crew: I got to the part where you pull the cartridge out but the cartridge won't
pull out for anything. I tried turning it a little less or a little more
than 90 degrees but to no avail. Any ideas what could be going on?
Dan Hantack: Great video thank you very much.
Rick Smith: This video is very misleading. You CAN NOT pull out the old cartridge with
a pair of pliers. I struggled for awhile and called my plumber. He said you
must have a special tool to remove the cartridge. He added that the video
must have been using a brand new faucet.
Matt Goodrum: Thanks for posting this video. The descriptions online led me to believe I
had a ball-type faucet, but your video shows I clearly have one of these
exact same cartridge types. Ordering the part I need once I dismantle it
and find out. P.S. I didn't think to remove the logo to find the screw
uublr: Thank you! Perfect instructions, Drip now entirely gone! :-)
Glenn Drysdale: This is really good; I have this same setup. However, as one other person
said, the screw keeps spinning and won't come out. It may well have been
stripped when it was installed, no clue. Long nosed pliers won't get it out
either--can't get them on it well enough. I guess my only recourse is to
pull the entire faucet and take it to a Moen place? Any ideas welcomed ;o)
Considering drilling out the screw...
Stephen McCoy: Thanks for the video! Big time helpful.
Jean Boyd: Excellent presentation. No more dripping faucet!
Rick Smith: Don - yes, he did have the tool. Since I was paying him by the hour I had
him install a new faucet. I'll bet you can get that tool at any hardware
store that sells Moen faucets.
Heavyboxes: You are a lifesaver!¡! Actually you're a human being that saved my life.
Actually you saved me the cost of a new faucet. At least you saved
salomon moreno: Thanks alot
Shannon Harder: Thanks for posting this, it helped me choose the right cartridge. BTW most
hardware or plumbing supply stores will give you the replacement Moen
cartridge for free if you give them the faulty one because they have a
Costas Ikonomopoulos: Thank you so much for sharing!
Dan R: Thanks for sharing, Great Video! When I try to take out the Phillips screw
it just keeps on spinning counter clockwise and doesn't come out. Is
there a trick to getting the Phillips screw out? Thanks!
Tanya Martinez: This was a lifesaver!!! I was going to just replace the faucet, but now for
20 dollars for the stem and 2 dollars for the hex wrench set, I am good to
go!! So easy to follow your directions and I did pause, run to perform the
step and come back and see the next.. Although as a woman, it was a bit of
a struggle to pull the stem!! I just slid a cross top in the little opening
on the side and levered it up and out.. I didn't end up with extra pieces
or the faucet not looking the same as when I started. I will be looking
for your videos whenever I need to work on another project Thank you so
much for this help.!!
Robert Choi: Hello, I cannot get the grey collar loose. I don't know if there is a build
up of minerals causing it. How did you get is loose ?
leo5208: After shutting off the water the next step should be to close the drain so
you won't lose the logo cap, screws, or clip!
DebbieStar: Excellent video, thanks for sharing. I was able to follow along step by
step and it worked perfectly. It saved me from buying a new faucet.
AsianStore1: the dark grey plastic ring wont come off.. its literally stuck on there..
what do i do?
KING KRUSH: I'm not handy at all. But after watching this great upload of yours, I'm
going to attempt this next time I have a leak. I'll let you know what
happens when I do. Thanks for this video.
Amy Hardee: Excellent info! It helped me fix my sister's bathroom sink leak. It was the
same one as yours. Thanks for sharing!!!! Later, Joel.
DIY Tinker: Moen's website says you have to have the original receipt in order to get a
replacement. Was that the same case for you?
rmpaws: I have found that the grey collar being loose will cause a leak and
tightening it will fix the leak without replacing the cartridge.
modasawala: Many thanks. This video is great. I'll work on my faucet. Moens faucets get
leaky very often. Thx
sleepyJ56: Just to let you know, your video was spot on for the repair I just
finished. Outstanding, thanks for posting.
Bill McElroy: Hmmm...I took the hex screw out entirely and cannot get the handle off of
the stem to get to the cartridge. What am I missing?
James Froese: Never had to bring in a receipt, just brought the old cartridge back after
I had put in the new one. I guess its up to the local hardware store to
make that decision, maybe it's different in the US.
bdp6740: Thanks so much for posting this. Im removal and installation was quick and
easy. I am not handy at all and this was a breeze. Thanks again!
DIY Tinker: you are welcome, and you are a good brother my friend.
James Froese: I do maintenance on 13 homes and when I have to replace a moen cartridge I
just go to the local lumber yard that sells the moen line and get a
replacement for free, all I have to do is bring back the old one. It was
the lumber store that pointed it out to me.
Mysppower: Thank you! I was able to change the catridge by following your video.
MrBuildingSupplies: I love just buying these replacement filters every few months. No lugging
water bottles home, no bottles crowding my fridge, no half-consumed bottles
all over the house. The filters are very easy to replace and work well.

Adam Sorensen: Thanks. Went exactly as described. You saved me a new faucet, which I would
have bought instead of trying to figure this out on my own. Cheers
DIY Tinker: good advice. thx!
James Froese: Moen carries a life time warranty and you should never pay for the
cartridge, Moen is happy to replace the cartrige for free.
Brian Eastwood: Mine was the same I did recently, felt like pulling the sink out if I
lifted too hard. haha. I just got the grip on it and moved it round a
little and applied a little force up and down and it slipped out. great vid
thanks.. it's easy when your see how it goes together and it's not going to
spring all over the room when you take a clip out. :)
LuvdCaps: The little metal washer needed to be placed under the white plastic piece,
not over it. The instructions with the cartridge also show to do it that
way. When I turned on the water, after putting in the cartridge and putting
all the parts back in place, the hot and cold were reversed. I had to take
everything apart again (easier the second time) and reverse the cartridge.
Then it worked fine. The install went very well and I saved a lot of money
by not having to call a plumber. Thanks!
bthompguitar: Good vid, but don't forget to remind people to always close the drain AND
lay a towel down in the sink (preferably a light colored one) to catch
small parts/tools if they fall.
DIY Tinker: thx for pointing that out. i added it to the note section
DIY Tinker: yes, that is very true. thx for pointing that out.
marita karten: Although I can't really know if it really filters out everything the
directions say it does, I can tell a difference in the taste of the water
that comes out of the filter. I only drink and shower with filtered water.
here is the link to it in case anyone is interested: amzn.to\11oTXqg
Tom Werner: Thanks, excellent video. The Moen paper instructions and website animations
are actually inaccurate or at least very vague (they give the impression
that you should remove the threaded white plastic piece with channel locks,
when actually you remove it by removing the U-shaped clip and lifting it
off). Also, when reassembling, hooking the lip of the rocker is essential.
Your video shows both of these elements perfectly. Well done and thanks!
Carol Gibbs: Great help much appreciated! Carol
Olaf Von Hambergler: Is there a model number on there somewhere so we know which plunger to get?
So we don't need to buy both types first
DIY Tinker: it might have oxidized or corroded over time. it should come out.
