after dripping water from my kitchen faucet during freezing temp, my aerator blew out of it. I can’t find any info how to replace. Moen cust service did not call at my scheduled time slot and they are not taking calls normally- only by appointment. I tried pulling the inner rubber piece that’s left off with needle nose pliers. There are no circular grooves behind that for me to screw in an aerator I got from Lowe’s. So I’m wondering if I have to unscrew the last segment of the faucet and replace from the other end? However I can’t get that piece loose after using WD-40. I haven’t tried channel locks or anything bc I’m not even sure that piece is supposed to come off. And I’m not sure I’m turning the right way… facing the faucet, do I turn to the left for it to be counter clockwise? Pls help. Could not find a similar faucet on YouTube or anywhere else. It’s a Moen Finley model number 87313SRS.
I can’t get the end piece off! I’ve tried WD 40 and submerging and holding in white vinegar. It hasn’t budged. It probably hasn’t come off in 10 years. I saw a guy on YouTube use CLR in a balloon on the end of the faucet to keep submerged. It was for a different type of faucet though. Would you recommend that? Any other suggestions?
