A single handle shower faucet didn't want to turn off all the way, so I assume it's gunked up with hard water items within the valve.

My question is, how do I remove this valve, I've never seen this type before? There was a "U" clip at the top (which I removed), but I am afraid to go any further after removing it. The valve won't pull straight out... Does it need a pipe wrench and the whole thing unscrews from behind the fiberglass area?

For the valve replacement - do I need to rebuild it, or buy a new one?



Thanks for your help!
Nathan.

What ever you do, dont turn off the water with that pin out of palce. You need to put a pipe wrench on the brass part sticking out of the wall and turn clockwise. Reverse threads on that moen. Once you break loose the valve, you will see 4 set screws holding the cartridge in place. Take out the set screws and then you can remove cartridge.
