Same problem. The key to releasing it is finding the 'latch' of the 'spring'. I wish I could upload a photo. It just snaps off the way the battery compartment opens on your TV remote. On a TV remote if you apply too much pressure then you break the 'latch' on the battery's door, as we all know it is about applying pressure it the right place of the 'spring'. Once I got the correct placement of the flat head screw driver it was easy, but it took me 30 minutes to figure that out and I broke a piece of the towel rack.

remove it and carefully inspect it, you might have scuff'd up the rubber's on the cartridge when you inserted new one.clean out,look in hous'ing for any foriegn mat.etc .you may need another new cart.

There is no screw here.

Insert a small flat screwdriver -- small enough to fit fully in the hole -- and pivit it up, so that the tip presses toward the wall. This should easily release the locking tab.

Just buy a backflow preventer and install it in-between the pipe coming out of the wall and the shower head. Most (all?) shower heads have 1/2? standard pipe thread. Home Depot sells a backflow preventer with 1/2? standard pipe thread for $6.97.
Good luck and hope this helps.

If you pull back the end cover you should see the adjustment screw.

The Moen 1222 is the cartridge you want. The 1222 is the OEM number, and the cartridge carries a lifetime warranty. If you call moen at 1-800-buy-moen, they will likely send you a replacement cartridge free of charge. Some wholesale plumbing suppliers will also do it if you act like you know what you are talking about, and they don't have an aversion to "retail" customers.
