Answer: 
Hi, I don't know if this is too late, but maybe I can help others.
The hub comes off by turning the hub counter-clockwise while holding the handle in the off position.
You may need to remove the top cap with a flat head screwdriver if there is a screw to remove, if not just remove the hub.
It may be very difficult to remove because of hard water, if so, use a rubber strap wrench.

Answer: 
Look at the very top of the handle. It should be a tight fitting cap. Gently pry off with a knife. This exposes the screw that you are looking for.

Answer: 
Find yourself a jar opener made of a soft plastic material. Fit it around the hub, get a firm grip on the opener and turn it counter-clockwise. The hub should unscrew, revealing the guts of the faucets.

Answer: 
It's a tight O ring fit. You have too pull it off. First make sure you remove the thin brass nut with the special tool that you can buy on line. Then what I did was to clamp a needle nose vise grip pliers onto the exposed end and using a wood block underneath it as a lever it pulled out easily. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Assuming we have the same Moen here.
Turn of water to whichever handle you are working on, and be sure to turn the handle a few times to release any pressure.
No need to remove top cap of handle, turn the hub (body of handle) counter-clockwise while holding the handle in the off position. This may need a rubber strap wrench to take off because of hard water.
You will need the Moen 14272 Cartridge Read More

You will need the Moen 14272 Cartridge Retainer Remover to remove the retainer before removing the cartridge.
Use the retainer remover to remove the retainer, then use small need nose pliers to pull the cartridge. This may take a little muscle, but was easy for mine.
Unscrew the red (for hot side) or blue (for cold side) and screw onto the new cartridge.
Align the protruding tab on the cartridge with the recessed tab inside faucet.
Voila, put the parts back on, ready to go. Read Less

The replacement cartridge was exactly what was needed to fix a dripping faucet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from Terrible faucet cartridges Any Moen faucet that uses this style cartridge will allways have problems. My wife had to have the "Nice" looking fancy faucets for our remodel. We purchased two faucets for our double vanity. They only lasted about a year until drip, drip, drip. Only cure is to replace the cartridge. I have replaced all of them - three times now - for a total of 12 cartridges. I contacted Moen and recieved no response. Next step is to switch faucets to something different, but my wife likes the "look" these. So if your looking at these to repair a faucet, buy in multiples to have some reserve stock on hand and save your self a little aggrivation down the road. I have to say they are a breeze to replace - or I'm just getting good at it from lots of practice. Ha! Moen - I bought it for looks and buying it for life!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have to Agree ... I'm on my second set of cartridges with a Moen 87400 dual handle kitchen faucet. Less than five years old. Sucker leaks like a seive.
