I'm trying to change a cartridge in a Moen bathroom faucet (2 handled chate
au style, see picture below). the problem is that I cannot even remove the
top cap to remove the handle. they say use a screwdriver or sharp instrum
ent. It doesn't work. I keep scratching the cap. And suggestions?
Why would you pry with a knife? Seems like a good way to ruin a knife.
They claim a screwdriver would work so they must think there
is enough there that a screw driver would get purchase.
Using something thinner is probably okay.
Mainly what the page shows is that the way in is through that cap
and the cap is not screwed in, it just pops out.
I'm well aware that it's not always that easy.
