Dripping Shower head

I have a Delta single lever faucet that feeds a shower head only. Recently it has started a slow drip. I have taken the faucet apart up to what appears to be a white cartridge. I am not sure how to take it off to get at the springs and washers behind it. I have pryed at it a bit but don't want to break something.

Any help is appreciated

The cartridge should come out with a little persuasion. Do you have a model # or a picture of it?

No, I'm sorry I don't have the model #.
I do have a picture but I am not sure how to post it.
Do I just pull on the cartridge to get it to come off?

Normally, if its guts, you can pull them out. I remember one faucet I had that the guts were supposed to come out but I couldn't for the life of me get them out. Just wondering if its the same Delta faucet.

If it's an old Delta Monitor (NOT Monitor II), the cartridge should pull right out. On the escutcheon (the metal piece in back that goes up against the tile), it will say "Delta" on top and "Monitor" on the botom. The other big give away is if the black button on the front of the handle has a red and blue swoosh to indicate hot and cold. There is a conversion kit to fit a new cartridge as the OEM cartridges are no longer made. A little pricey but now I can use the new cartridges, so it won't be as expensive next time.

Try the Delta website. I had good luck with their on-line chat help.

I believe it pulls right out. JUST MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE WATER SUPPLY FIRST!!!

I created the account in Photo Bucket and have added the picture.
Now how do I post the picture?
