    Newbie here so apologies if I got nothing wrong.

    Tough one here. I need to buy replacement cartridges for a pfister tub spread faucet. I currently don’t have an access point so can’t remove in advance. Also can’t find model numbers. The handles and faucet are 12 years old. Going to need to temporarily remove a big piece of granite so need to buy cartridges first. I’ve attached a couple of pics and thought I’d take a shot here. Thanks!

    1. WHY will you have to remove ANY granite?
    2. Call 1-800-PFAUCET and Pfister will send you the cartridges needed.

    Thanks for the great input. I had a professional look at it and said couldn’t unscrew from top. Not sure if maybe the plastic ring at the bottom in this pic prevents?

    Here is a video of replacing what looks like your cartridge from the top:



    It does show pulling the plastic ring and escutcheon.

    I have NEVER seen a faucet that you have to repair "from the bottom". He must NOT have been a very good "professional".
