I have a white Moen shower that came with the house. The diverter leaks but there not really any white replacements. So I went to home Depot to buy a new set and since I don't know if I have a posi valve currently, I just decided to change out the fixtures. Good on the shower and spout but I can't get whatever is behind the handle/trim to come off.any help on what I'm screwing up so I can pull and replace the handle would be appreciated. Also, I have no idea what a posi temp is but if you can tell by the pick and let me know if that's what I have it'd be appreciated as well. Thank you
There is a screw, ( usually Philips) down in the hole in the temperature stop ( Grey Thing) remove the screw and that part will come off. You may have to pull hard, so turn the water off to then house or you will get a shower. Then the sleave slides off and the trim plate can be removed. The "Positemp" is an anti-scald mixing valve. It can be identified by the screw holes in the trim plate that are diagonally opposed. Older first gen Moen valves have 2 holes closer to each other at the bottom of the trim plate.
