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
Paul Rini: Thanks...excellent video! I suggest everyone work over a CLOSED drain and
or a towel in the sink for obvious reasons. Don't ask me how I know
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
Dave Leake: 2 comments. Your mention of the size hexagonal wrench required (7/64") to
remove the handle was a godsend. I have a lifetime collection of what we
used to call "Allen wrenches," but not that one; had to buy a small set at
Home Depot to get it. Also ended up buying the Moen removal tool. Second,
if you discover you have switched the hot and cold sides, there is a simple
instruction that comes with the replacement cartridge to correct that.
Thanks for the great video!
Costas Ikonomopoulos: Thank you so much for sharing!
Mike Dietsch: Thanks for sharing this Video! I followed your directions and it worked
like a charm, as good as new! Thanks so much!!
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.

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
Olauph Ostirach: 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.
DIY Tinker: really? Can you give more detail or a website?
whompmaster: Yep, I ran into this very problem where my hot and cold water were
backwards. If you look at the new installed hardware you will see a hole on
one side. I had to make sure the hole was facing the bottom or towards the
sink and then the hot water was working correctly again. Other than that
this was a great video and helped me out a lot. Thanks!
David Perrodin: Worked great! Your video saved me a BUNCH of time. Thank you.
MisterBenJammin: Thanks for this. Repaired 2 of these today with your help.
DIY Tinker: wow, awesome! you've been busy :)
Mike Meraw: no receipt necessary for me today, home hardware Canada just handed me a
gilberteaz: Thanks for the video, It helped me repair my faucet. The faucet is loser
then before, when I try to run a slow stream it turns off. Is they're an
adjustment for that?
youngblood27: Thanks very much worked perfectly. You are a gentleman and a scholar :)
Michael Jordan: Good Info, you forgot to say that it DOES matter which way you intall the
cartridge, if you didnt see how the Cartridge came out, if once you
reassemble it and your Hot water and Cold water are on opposite sides, take
the Cartridge out once again, turn it 180 degrees and reinstall it. that
will solve that.
