Single Handle 4" Centerset Knob: Top Cap (Prior to 2009)
- The water supply shut off valves must be turned off- see article How to Turn Off the Water Supply to the Faucet.
- Recommended Tools: Phillips Screwdriver
If you need to replace the cartridge (#10) or the pivot stop (#8), confirm the water is off and use a flathead screwdriver to pull out the retainer clip (#9) from the back of the pivot stop (#8). Pull the pivot stop (#8) and washer (#4) off the faucet. See article 1225 Cartridge: Single Handle Bathroom Faucets (Prior to 2009) for replacing the cartridge (#10).
Make sure the notch on the flat side of the top of the cartridge stem is facing forward. See Figure A.
If the cartridge or pivot stop (#10) were replaced you must first place the washer (#11) on the cartridge stem. Next, slide the pivot stop (#10) on with the tooth at the back of the faucet. Slide the retainer clip (#9) into the slot on the pivot stop (#10). If you encounter any resistance, the cartridge may not be properly aligned, see Installing a Cartridge Clip (1200 and 1225 Cartridge) for additional details.
