No. You have to buy it separate. I just used my old one though. If you're careful about getting the old one off, it works just fine.

No clip comes with the shower valve, but you can buy them in a hardware store separately. TRICk -Put a thin gauge wire on the clip before removal and before installing to prevent it from falling down behind the tub or shower wall.

Well it sounds like the plumbers hooked it up backwards. This would require them to return and switch the hot and cold lines going into the valve mechanism. Replacing the cartridge will only fix the leak not the hot/cold problem.

Answer: 
The cartridge can be inserted upside down and that will reverse the hot and cold. Before you remove the original cartridge, look for the H and C on the front of the cartridge. I bet they will read upside down and be on the lower part of the front of the cartridge. Put your new cartridge in with the H and C on the top. The H and C should be on the opposite side as your original cartridge..

If it's truly this cartridge, and you can break it loose, you can simply invert the cartridge, that is, rotate the stem 180 degrees. When I just installed my new one, I had to do this. I had a problem with the old cartridge where it wouldn't mix at all and was all hot.

I don't think so. It sounds like the original fixture was installed backwards (perhaps due to the layout of the piping), but once installed, I don't think there is a way to reverse the hot/cold in the valve, itself.

Answer: 
When you install a replacement cartridge, flip the cartridge upside down - the HC label on the cartridge will be on the bottom and the H will be next to the hot pipe and the C next to the cold - before you put the retaining clip in. The instructions for your repair/replacement kit should also have this information.

Answer: 
The new cartridge comes with a tool to rotate it that allows it to rotate up a ramp on the valve body to enable it to be pulled out. In theory. HD sells a more robust tool that does it easier. I used two screwdrivers, one on each side of the cartridge and slowly pried it out. Don't forget to remove the clip first...

My experience is, first remove the U-shaped pin behind the front of the brass casing by pulling it up. It is very hard to see because the pin sets behind the front of the brass casing, the top of the pin sets flush with the casing, and the pin is back in the wall where it is dark and cramped. Once the pin is out, place the plastic remover tool over the front of the cartridge and use a wrench to rotate the cartridge clockwise and counterclockwise a few degrees (until the edge of the casing stops the turning). Turn several times to break the seal between the outside of the old cartridge and the casing wall. Insert the screw which holds the handle onto the cartridge, grab the head of the screw with a pair of pliers and pull straight out. If the cartridge does not come out, go to home depot and buy a cartridge remover tool and use it. This tool only lets you pull out the cartridge a quarter of an inch. If you can't pull the cartridge by hand with the tool attached after the cartridge moves a quarter of an inch, get a 4-foot long 2x4 and a few wood shims. Stack the shims on the tile beside the cartridge and use them as a pivot point for the 2x4. Put one end of the 2x4 under the removal tool and pry backwards, keeping the cartridge as straight as possible. If this fails, try prayer. If successful, be sure and put the provided lubricating jell on the new cartridge before inserting it. Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Installation was a breeze. Be sure to wipe interior of valve housing after pulling old one out, just in case of any build up residual. Tie a string to the clip that holds the valve in housing before you remove it so it doesn't drop behind the wall. I did use a puller that was made for this valve removal that I had purchased. Glad I did. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just minutes to install! I terrified of fixing this leaky faucet, but after a short YouTube video and a trip to HD: done in 5 MIN! September 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the greatest, but easy to repair and Moen stands behind. Had the bath faucet for two years. Knob broke, then a week later cartridge stuck in the on position. had to turn off water to house. Bought a new cartridge to get fixed that day, but Moen will send new parts under lifetime warranty. I have had good experiences with Moen standing behind their warranty. This faucet is easy to repair. September 5, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not too bad... Shower was dripping...so time to replace the cartridge. It was last replaced 6 years ago. They seem to last about that long. Some tips: 1) take pics as you disassemble - they will come in handy later; 2) shove a towel under the assembly to prevent the clip from falling; 3) Slide a paper clip through the clip to be able to securely remove it and not have it drop. Once installed, the water control is smooth once again and the dripping has stopped. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best solition I install the product very easy.It is working excellent August 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too expensive. But stopped the leak. My shower cartridge began to leak after only 3 years. At $39 this is an expensive repair. I'm disappointed in Moen's quality/price. That being said the replacement was fairly easy after watching a couple of youtube videos. The little white plastic removal tool was essential to getting the old cartridge out. It took about 15 minutes of slowly rotating the cartridge back and forth with a set of channel locks on the plastic tool. Finally the cartridge slid out about half an inch on the beveled edge of the valve. It took another 10 minutes of pulling and then rotating with the tool to finally coax the old cartridge out. Remember to pay attention to the H/C label orientation of the old cartridge before removing and lube up the new cartridge rubber seals liberally with the included lubricant before installing.
