    I have a shower with a single tear drop shaped acrylic pull handle. I have a leak problem. When I push the handle in, water continues to leak from the faucet. Any suggestions?

    Many faucets come with cartridges. ​
    If yours is a Moen, you can remove the handle, ​
    remove the tube behind the handle, ​
    pull out the u-shapped clip​
    Remove the cartridge. ​

    That fits the description, once I remove that, do I have to replace it with a new one?

    yes, get a replacement cartridge and reassemble. You should be good for a numberof years.
