  • Price Pfister cartridge

    I'm trying to remove a cartridge from a push/pull shower valve but can't figure it out, there's no nut,clip, or pin. The only thing I can figure out is that it has to be pulled out but that doesn't seem right, there's nothing to turn, grab or pull. (pic).

    That brass ring with the two notches is the retainer. FIRST of course, turn of the main water. Then a pair of needle nose should turn it. It it needs persuasion, use a flat blade screwdriver and tap gently.

      looks like the p.p. avanti cartridge. you've already removed the brass threaded retainer nut.

      grab ahold of the stem with pliers and yank it out. it's only a friction fit with large rubber grommets and an o-ring.

      clean out the ports and flush befroe you install the new cart.

      much easier than a stuck moen cartridge

          Sorry....had to dig out the # 3 Dean Edell glasses! The plastic retainer was screwed INTO the brass. The notch is of course to align the cartridge. Hadn't seen on of these for a long time.
