    How do you remove the cartridge (probably a VP1965) from a single handle Valley Faucet single-handle kitchen faucet with diverter? I cannot find a retaining clip. Is there something more than the screw-off cap that needs to be removed, a special tool/technique, or just pull harder?

    it is a palstic cartridge, they ususally
    need some prying along the bottom lip
    between the brass and plastic with
    something like a knife, sharp screwdriver...

    they usually come out fairley easily....

    the trick can be to to match that cartridge...

    Valley Faucet Repair - Thanks

    Thanks for the advice; I was able to extract the cartridge -- it took considerable force to get it to come out because of scaling. Now I'll search for the replacement...

    Faucet Repair Successful

    Thanks for the help and advice. The repair was successful and it's important to ensure that the bottom O-ring from the original cartridge is removed. I found the cartridge I needed at Teter's Faucet Supply, 6337 Oram St, Dallas, TX 75214 - (214) 823-2153.
