    Maybe the cartridge is hard to wiggle out. Here is a video to show you how it comes apart, and the wiggle technique with channel locks.

    The next video shows the pry out with a screwdriver technique, and Video #3 the guy uses vice grips. He had the same thing put the cartridge in backward. Just reversing it 180 degrees should be okay.

    I don't think it was installed wrong, as the cartridge has to fit into holes in the body of the faucet. Grab the stem with large pliers, and pull on it in outward motion. It will go. The cartridge is held in by 3 O rings: one on side of the cartridge and two small ones, on the hot / cold inlets. Those O rings are probably stiff, holding the cartridge in. Just be patient with it. It will go.

    Good luck

    Isn't there a retaining clip too? My single handle Delta shower mixer has one.
