*If the plastic stem with vertical splines is cracked:

If there is a Phillips head screw present, remove the Phillips head screw and plastic stem with vertical splines.  Make sure the plastic retainer nut is threaded down into the valve. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to reach the stem of the cartridge.

If there is not a Phillips head screw present, find the side of the extension that has five ribs at the top. Push on the side with five ribs. Using pliers, gently pull up on the extension to remove it.
