Faucet Repairs – Repair a Moen Single Handle Leaky Faucet “D.I.Y”
To repair a Moen single handle leaky faucet, first turn off the water supply and open the tap so as to release water pressure in line. Now unscrew the handle and remove it. Remove the escutcheon and all the visible screws so as to lift/pull the escutcheon. Grab the retaining clip and pull it out by using needle nose pliers. Now grasp the plastic removal tool with pliers and move back and forth until the valve cartridge gets loose and turns freely. This will allow you to pull up/out and remove the valve cartridge easily.
