Removal of the Collar and Nut

1. Always turn your water supplies off before disassembling your faucet.  With the supplies turned off, move your faucet handle to the "on"position to relieve pressure.

2. Remove the Moen logo button by pulling this forward. Insert the Allen wrench into the hole on the handle to unscrew the handle set screw. Remove the handle. Make sure not to lose the set screw.

3. Unscrew the Phillips screw in the center of the connector plate. The color and material of this connector plate can vary. Lift the connector plate off of the faucet and set this aside.

If the pivot retainer is stuck inside of the collar, the items will need to be separated or replaced with a new collar and nut parts kit.


7. Locate the flat spots on top of the retainer nut. Using large pliers or Channel Locks, unscrew the retainer nut counterclockwise. Place this away from the work area next to the collar.

Installation of the Collar and Nut

8. Tighten the retainer nut onto the faucet. Locate the brass stem in the center of the faucet. This has a small notch on one side. Rotate the stem to insure this notch faces forward.

9. Place the black pivot retainer on top of the nut. It is important that the pivot retainer is installed with the grooves facing the back of the faucet. Then put the collar on and tighten.

11. Locate the tab on the bottom of the handle connector plate. Place this plate on top of the faucet and make sure the tab goes into the groove in the back of the black pivot retainer. Tighten the Phillips screw.
