Leaking Pfister bathroom faucet
DoPhi

I'm trying to change the cold water cartridge on a Pfister F048DC00 bathroom sink faucet. The original part number was 910-025 which has changed to 910-032. I saw the new number also expressed as 910-0320, which is the part I picked up. I was told the 0320 was the same as 032, just a numbering difference. I cannot get the new cartridge to fit. It is too long for the depth available. When I removed the old cartridge and the loose pieces, I noticed there is what appears to be some form of seat upon which the cartridge sat and rotated. If this is removable, then I might be able to insert the new cartridge. The pattern in the seat was the reverse of that on the bottom of the old cartridge. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might complete this installation. Thanks

Compare the stem that you bought and the original stem - are they identical? size, thread, shape? OE stems must match exactly. After market stems are not always a perfect match.

Not knowing what you have done, it's hard to guide you.

If you are still having difficulties, hire a plumber or replace the faucet, a new faucet is not that much.
