Once its all the way in against the cartridge the ears on the puller should fit into the sides of cartridge and lock against it,then you can twist the handle on the puller to break cartridge loose from the faucet.
Then you tighten the nut ,this should pull against the cartridge while pushing against outside edge of faucet to remove cartridge

HOT water on bathtub faucet not working??


so I got it to come out about 1/8 of an inch..and im pulling pretty good not full strength and its even turning a bit inside soes it take a ton of pulling to get this out?


I shut the water off to the house if i cant get this thing all the way out and i turn back on the water is it going to leak?

As long as you get the clip back on you should be ok.
The hot/cold will probably be reversed now with cartridge being upside down,no big deal though

Before you install the new cartridge check inside of faucet for any trash/burrs,slop the new cartridge up with plumbers grease really good before installing it to protect the o-rings
