Hi,
I screwed to much the little back screw on the tub filler and the pipe broke. See pic. I ordered the damage part from Moen but I don't know what to use or where to buy something to take out this part.

Can you help me naming this tool to take out this bolt inside the pipe?

Try an "easy out". Auto parts stores carry them usually, but sears or any of the big box stores also carry them. They look a little like a drill bit, but they are tapered (they get narrower towards the tip) and the flutes are left handed. You put it in and as you turn it counterclockwise it digs in and you should be able to back out the broken nipple. You will need to have an idea of what size pipe you are trying to back out because they come in various sizes. Good luck.

The Damage part came with the special too needed to take out the nut. Loved the service of this brand.

Sorry, I meant the replacement part came with the tool needed.
