Unhappy Monticello Handle Hub Just Spins - Need to Extract

I have been fixing the cartridges for the MOEN Monticellos that came with my house. However, when the handle for the cold water fell off for my Tub, I thought it would be as simple as removing it and re-tightening the screw. Not the case. The Hub is just spinning... and won't come out.

I have added a video here:

Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

Email moen and they will walk you through fixing it. They will also send you free replacement parts. If its a single handle 1200 series youll want the metal version of the cartridge removal tool.

Calling a licensed plumber is your best choice.... unless you want to deal with it over and over.
