Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IHatePlumbing The repair kit is much less expensive than replacing the entire cartridge. Be careful when installing the metal valve (with new O-rings installed) into the new sleeve. The O-rings can get pinched and may get cut. The kit comes with a tool that helps pry the cartridge assembly out of the brass housing. My cartridge was stuck and required vise grips and a lot of effort to remove.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tman I returned it
It was not what I needed so I returned it. Return was easy and great and they helped me identify the correct part

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jim Works, not as easy as you think
The repair parts worked, the install is the hard part. Disassembly took over an hour, did not come apart as easily as the instructions would lead you to believe. Why doesn't the repair parts come assembled with the brass insert?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mgm Works great!
A word of warning is to be sure to use the provided lubricant on the new "O" rings. Also, do not force the spool into the cartridge if it gets stuck during reassembly. Look at the cartridge slots where the O-rings must pass under and push the protruding O-rings back into the groove where they belong. If you force it, the O-rings will be severed.
I think that is what happened to the original cartridge because when I disassembled it, there were 2 small rubber shavings that came out with the spool. The faucet has had a very small drip from day 1 and was a little stiff when turning it on & off.
Works great now!!
BTW, I went to the Moen website to get the exact replacement kit for this faucet, then bought it at Home Depot online.

My friend tore the rubber side piece helping me install the original, this fixed it up nicely.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by reluctant o-rings shred when you try to reassemble
Followed the instructions carefully, including lubricant on internal o-rings etc. Needed to force inner cartridge back into position and, in doing so, shredded pieces from EACH of the internal O-rings. Replaced them with hardware store o-rings TWICE and tried to reassemble really carefully, but each time damaged the o-rings inside. So, this is not a suitable rebuild kit. Perhaps there is a fixture they use in manufacturing that prevents this problem, but not clear how you can do this at home. Usually Moen does much better, but this is not something you should purchase. Just buy a new cartridge.

The parts in the faucet will not remove with the Plastic removal tool supplied in the kit. First the ears on the existing cartridge broke off before the cartridge even started to rotate as instructed. After 6 years the cartridge is corroded into the housing and had to be broken out in pieces. The internal stem has an O ring on the stem and removing the cartridge can result in damage to the O ring groove. This is the second one I have replaced both took 4 hours to do the job and I tried to follow the instructions. I have been involved in home construction and maintenance for over 30 years and this is the first time I have ever had this big a problem with a product.
I will NEVER have another product from this company or buy a house that has their products.
The only good thing was the Home Depot order was delivered on time.
