Shower Trim Compatibility

Can I Change My Shower Trim Without Having To Change The Valve Behind The Wall?

Moen makes four different types of single handle shower valves. Visually, they all look very similar (see examples below), however there are major operational differences. The trim kits that they use are not interchangeable between one another so it is important to identify which valve is currently installed.
