The key to success with this bathroom shower repair is to find an unopened package. I purchased the same product from another retailer, but the package of every cartridge was opened. That should have been a red flag. I purchased one from the other store and it leaked as much as the one I was looking to replace. I returned it and headed to Home Depot where I bought one that worked.
If this replacement part works the first time, no need to return it to the store.
Not much else to say other than it worked (note to read the side of the cartridge so you place the hot side on the hot side)

The cartridge was easy to replace and fixed an annoying drip. Delta is the best!

We thought this piece came with the valve, but it did not and we needed two of them ASAP as we had our water off. Home Depot had this in stock and we were only with out water for a couple of hours.

You can rebuild this cartridge very easily. Just buy the Delta RP4993 Seats and Springs from Home Depot for $3.97. The cartridge comes apart by twisting CCW. Replace the old seats and springs and you have a new cartridge. Quick and easy.

Got my bathroom remodel. Got this part for a shower faucet and it' doesn't let me go toward to hot. It blocks this option only letting you stay at warm or cold .Which only produce warm water. Very unsatisfied.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FastEddie failed within 2 months
replaced the original cartridge (perhaps 8 yrs old) due to a persistent drip. Replaced with this model. Very easy installation. But, 2 months later it failed - no water at all. Removed, tapped it a few times thinking perhaps grit had fouled the intact. Reinstalled and still nothing. Removed again, tapped it a few times, reinstalled. This time water flowed freely - but wouldn't shut off! Don't know what the internal mechanism is that controls on/off, but sure seems like that's what failed.
So, another 50mile round trip to purchase another one. Wonder how long this will last? I guess I should have spent an additional $40 to have a spare for when the newest one fails.
As far as I know, this is the only cartridge replacement for the Delta shower control - I wouldn't recommend this specific product, but what else are you gonna use. Delta has us over the barrel...

The Delta Cartridge was the exact replacement and not difficult to install. The printed words on the instructions could be larger to allow easier reading.
