Manifold replacement

I have no hot water in my shower. I live in a condo and the hot water is good in the kitchen and bathroom sinks, but not in the shower.

Single-lever manifold (moen). I want to know if I have to replace the whole manifold, and can I do it without tearing out the tile wall. I am just fine with installing a manifold. Done several remodels and sweating pipe is fine, but I would prefer to not have to replace tile and waterproofing.

Re: Manifold replacement

Depends on what's wrong with it. It could just need the anti-scald device adjusted, it might be plugged with debris, or it might just need a rebuild.

If you do have to change out the whole valve, you can do it from the back if you've got access to that wall.
