Put pin in from behind faceplate and behind wall with NN pliers. Just don't lose the pin behind the wall.

Patience on this situation makes all the difference.

I think the next step is to remove the pin, but it's behind the shower wall. I see other references in this thread to this problem which suggest removing the whole thing, I can't figure out how to do that.

Also, as far as I can tell there's no way to access behind the wall with my layout.

Could somebody point me in the right direction?
I worked on the same issue this weekend. I found that if you push the valve in you can rotate the plastic piece to a position where the valve comes forward to remove the pin. Look closely at the white plastic "saddle" some notches are bigger than others. Rotate 90 degrees till you find the larges opening to let the valve come forward.

I'm having issues with my shower temperatures, turning the handle left or right doesn't change the temp, but does this replacement help with water pressure also? I replaced the head of my shower because i thought the original was clogged, but still there is very little pressure, its a heavy drip instead of flow.

JohnnyAir - Thanks for the tip! I was trying to replace my cartridge and couldn't figure out how to get that pin out. Rotating the white plastic piece did the trick.

I called Moen because my plumber told me that they would warranty the valve replacement. They were very helpful and are sending the new one out immediately!

Ours is a 2005 Bambi with exactly the same problem. The stop plate prevents the valve from being pulled forward so as to reach the spring retainer on the Moen cartridge. An AS expert advised that I need to enlarge the hole in the shower wall. What finally worked for you? Got pics? Thanks a million rivets!

In this video and in Moen's instruction sheet, It states that you can install the cartridge upside down. Unlike stated above, the only thing that will happen is that when first turned on, it will be hot, and cooler the farther you turn the handle. [instead of cold first and then hot]

Hi, remove the entire valve assembly. Sorry, no pictures.

Keep in mind that Moen items have a life time warranty. Just look up the faucet model number on line and call the Moen customer service number. They'll want the year purchased and in our experience send a new part free of charge. It isn't next day fast but a great deal if you have the time.

If a Moen faucet is "working backwards just remove the handle turn the valve stem 180 degrees, and put the handle back on. It will now work correctly.

"Remove the entire valve assembly" entails cutting a hole in the shower wall at least 3 inches square. Seriously?

Hi, I know some trailers are different; Mine is located in the bathroom sink cabinet. It needs to come out of the back side of the shower. Some trailers also have an access panel to get to the valve assembly.

There is only a couple of different controls. Take your old one to Home Depot or Ace they will have free replacements just ask some one in the store.

Richcrest - If your "2005 Bambi" is a "2005 19" with the rear corner shower, we have the same trailer and the removing the clip holding the cartridge looks impossible. But, the clip can be removed using JohnnyAir's solution... "I found that if you push the valve in you can rotate the plastic piece to a position where the valve comes forward to remove the pin. Look closely at the white plastic "saddle" some notches are bigger than others. Rotate 90 degrees till you find the larges opening to let the valve come forward." Good luck with your project. ~ Ken

Ken S---So did you tie a string or something on that plastic collar so as to not have it fall into the wall once the cartridge was removed?
