Installed a moen in my bathroom sink ,it started dripping soon after install . Got a new cartridge but could not get retaining nut out with out moen tool , that depot does not stock . Discovered if I turn handle back on a little drip stops . Now years later the other handle starts dripping , it takes many times of handle fiddling to slow down the drip . Buy tool online and 2 cartridges , tool brakes retaining ring , faucet NG ,need new faucet , anything but moen = big money junk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nathaniel Purchased a house that had both bathrooms renovated just one year and 2 months ago. Both bathrooms have the same 4" two handle faucets by moen (I'm not sure on the model number). About a week ago one bathroom's hot water started leaking. Replaced it with this unit. two weeks later the master bath's cold water started dripping now.
My parents house has nothing but Moen faucets from when it was built in '79 and it's faucets are all still orginal. My father said he only replace one rubber ring below the label that protects the screw that holds the stem assembly on the single handle faucet because we (3 rough housing boys)broke it.
Looks like I will be replacing these faucets with someone else's.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Desertrat Trick to removing and replacing stuck 1224
I have wide spaced two handle faucets and had to replace a leaky hot water side. I ordered a replacement 1224 and the tool to remove the nut. The handle and nut came off easily but I could not remove the cartridge even with strenous tugging on a large needle nose pliers as suggested by Moen.
I then clamped a large needle nose Vise Grip onto the plastic part, placed wood blocks almost to the open part of the jaws on the Vise Grip on my countertop, stuck a 1/4" x 1 foot piece of round metal stock into the remaining open part of the jaws and used it as a lever by pushing the other end downward using the wood blocks as a fulcrum. It came out as easy as pie. The rest of the installation was easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by portsmouthjohnny Easy to install - took only 2 mins to replace. Excellent!
Easy to install. Turned off the water to the faucet. Popped the top of faucet off, unscrewed the screw in the faucet top. Removed that - then loosened the hold down ring. Pulled the old cartridge off and plugged in the new cartridge - tightened everything back up. Turned the water on... and no more drip!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HDShopper Not difficult to replace the cartridge yourself
You may try several times to install it but it can be done.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Meyer One cartridge worked fine, the other has an incurable drip.
I'm a professional handyman with years of plumbing experience, and I have never seen such garbage! While one cartridge is working properly, the other drips.
To top it off, the cartridges are held in by a very thin-walled plastic tube that is notched at the top to accept Moen's removal tool... except the tool is much better suited for removing the notch rather than the tube. I literally had to obliterate one of the tubes in order to remove the cartridge. (and no, that's not the one that leaks). The removal tool is expensive for a badly machined bit of rolled steel tubing, and because the bosses on the bottom of the tool are deeper than the notch in the top of the retainer tube, the tool rocks back and forth, rending asunder the notches! Bad design and worse execution. All in all a very poor and frustrating experience.
