Moen Kitchen Faucet does not swivel, what to replace?

Our Kitchen faucet does not swivel. Also there is a bit of an O-ring sticking out at bottom. See pic 2.

My plan is to replace the bottom O-ring (#146213). And silicon grease whatever O-rings I find when I open it up. We have really hard water here in AZ. So soak everything in vinegar.

I was wondering if there is anything else I need to replace or do while I am ordering parts and getting in there. It does not leak from the bottom but water seeps slowly from the middle section.

I have identified it as an Moen Integra one handle pullout faucet. 67315C
One of the faucets on this page Moen Customer Support | Moen

Thanks for your time

This is a common problem with single hole faucets. Water will get into the bottom of the faucet body and corrode the inside. The body is the part the wand inserts into.

Here's how I fix it:
-Remove body and scrape off hard deposits on the inside bottom
-After scraping the surface even, polish with 300 grit or so sandpaper
-Apply plumbers grease to the inside of the body and the new O-ring

The body can be removed from above.
Moen has a lifetime warranty, I'm not sure if the body is covered. I can tell you that whether covered or not, I have received new bodies and other parts such as a wand assembly totally free of charge. Moen and Delta have excellent customer service.

Just updating this for anyone else who happens on this.

Handyone was spot on. Thanks Handyone! Exactly the problem I had. Also Moen was excellent and provided parts and assistance, free of charge. This was even though, I was not original owner. Really superb service and highly recommended.

The hardest part was identifying the faucet type. We got it wrong a couple of times and then removing the screw. Was jammed in there pretty good. Had to break off the handle.. or rather, broke off the handle while trying to get it off.

Thanks for the feedback.

People should ask for help in identification if unsure. Pros here on the forum see so many faucets, it's rather easy to narrow down the brand and model number.

Good job

You are welcome! Sorry, I didnt get around to it sooner.

I think this was an older model of a Moen Renzo. It was misidentified by Moen. It was not until I opened it up and sent close ups that it was correctly identified.

How hard would it be for them to just stamp a model number somewhere on the faucet!! I now have a bathroom sink faucet that is beginning to drip... not a make or model number in sight!
