Another stuck Moen Cartridge (1222)
1 Attachment(s)

Good morning all... I spoke to the gentleman at Home Depot about my shower issue(no hot water) and he said its probaby the Moen cartridge... So I purchased the Moen 1222 Cartridge and the core puller tool... He mentioned that it should take around 20 mins to complete... I got everything apart without a hitch... when it came time to remove the cartridge by turning it clockwise 45 degrees to unlock it, it seemed hard... so I called the store back and he said it can take quite a lot of force to loosen it... So I ended up breaking the tabs off on the old cartridge... So I called him back and he said to saw about 1/2 inch off the rod(that turns the water on/off) so I could get easier access with pliers and its still not working... I uploaded a picture to show what I am talking about... am I doomed or is there a fix I can do to get this thing out? Thanks... I am a pretty good mechanic (cars and trucks) but this is my first attempt at plumbing

Thanks for the reply... If this is the clip you were talking about, I have already removed it...
