You
I have a Moen, single handle showered faucet. It is a thin wall installation. The retaining plate is preventing me from removing the retaining ring so I can replace the cartridge.

The thin wall install plate cannot be pushed back Any ideas on how I can access the retaining pin?

Appreciate anyone's help on this.

You will just have to learn to live with the drip or remove entire faucet

You really should find a new master. Your current one is failing you.

I remember when they had the white plastic mud guard. Then they were black for a while. Now they're green. I wonder what color theyll be next. Grey. That's it. I believe they will be grey. Change my mind.

Don't forget the "Made with 100% recycled ocean plastic" stamp!

Grohe is grey, Moen is white, Kohler is black, and Symmons is green.

No sir. I assure you moen switched at some point to black and it stayed black for quite a while. And now they’re green.

but to the OP, I can get that clip out as is, and hope to bell I don’t drop it in the process.
Anyone ever come across one with the HO put a pipe wrench on the valve body (cartridge housing) and bend and twist the ever loving sh!t out of it? I have. I had no words.

I’ve seen a few chewed up cartridges/stems, where the homeowner didn’t know about the “pin”… heheh.
