How do you remove a Moen faucet diverter?

My sink has a diverter, but it seems to be clogged. How do I remove the diverter and hose entirely?


Answer by  JohnAndrew (199)

The clogging may be the result of a faulty cartridge. You need to remove the cartridge and replace it with a new one. Simply remove the handle and any nuts, then replace the cartridge.

You must first shut the water supply off, the remove the handle attached by an Allen screw. You then must remove the retaining nut and now the cartridge is acessable. Pull up on the cartridge and replace it with the new one.

The diverter is integral to the faucet design. If the spray hose doesn't work, it will likely not affect the faucet working. If there is still a problem, you can remove the insides of the diverter and leave the sprayer hooked up. It won't work, but there will be nothing in the diverter to block flow to the faucet.
