To repair a leaking shower valve
Replacement parts didn't fit old 20 year moen tub shower cartridge. Therefore I wasted my money. wouldn't recommend any one buying it.
Plastic housing cannot be removed from stem/manifold using thumb as shown in instructions for older units (mine was 17 years old). May require holding plastic housing with pliers and pounding on a table. A towel and pliers on the metal housing to twist and pull the manifold from the housing may be needed. Do not disturb plastic cap on bottom of old 1222. Failure to comply will damage cap. When the cap is removed, there is a manifold within outer metal manifold that is not intended to be removed. This inner manifold for the outer metal manifold cannot be reinstalled easily and has no instructions. Ensure all debris is removed from o-ring cavities. Failure to comply will chop new o-ring off when you attempt to install plastic housing. Recommend buying the Moen cartridge. This repair kit was a waste of money for me. The product was delivered promptly, however, by The Faucet Depot.
I was able to pull the old catridge with the plastic puller supplied with the kit. After reading other reveiws I thought I would have to buy a puller but I was able to work the cartridge out even though it had been in there for 16 years.
