    This is an older 2 piece cartridge for the OX8 series. Its been replaced by the updated one piece 974-042.

    Thank you!. Do you know of a special tool to remove the old one? I tried using a pair of needle nose pliers, but it wouldn't budge and I'm afraid if I try and force it too hard it will break.

    The home was built in 1997.

    You have to remove the 4 bolts holding it in, IF it is a Pfister valve.

    4 bolts? I don't see any bolts. Do I have to remove the faceplate to see these?

    All the chrome trim needs to be removed. You will see the 4 screws. Remove them and the chrome stem and bonnet can be removed. Then use your needle nose pliers to remove the grey balance cartridge.
