Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fixed dripping bathtub The overall process was pretty easy. You have to be a little careful when putting on the new gaskets to not stretch/tear them and again when putting the outer shell on so they don't get pinched in the shell's openings. Very satisfied with the product, much cheaper than replacing the whole cartridge. July 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Got the job done. The part came exactly as advertised with all parts in plastic. Assembly was a bit of a challenge, but not too difficult for a mechanically-inclined DIYer. September 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not that hard Using this kit and watching a YouTube video made the repair of a leaky valve very easy. I did not need to order the removal tool because the kit contained a tool for removing the cartridge. I did need to make sure I assembled the cartridge slowly with a good measure of oil (supplied) so that the "O"-rings did not get damaged. January 4, 2014
