Hi I am in the process of replacing my cartridge and have a major problem. I used the advice above and was finally able to remove the bonnet after investing in a strap pliers, but not before first trying to remove it with regular heavy duty pliers. I think I twisted too much and now when I went to turn the hot side of the water back on, the water is spraying from the underneath part of the main housing assembly that the cartridge sits in! The cold water was turned back on with no issues. How would that leak or crack be fixed? Is soddering it the answer? Anyone else ever have this happen?
