    There are about two ways you can screw it up. The first is to not reinstall the retainer clip. If that is not put back, then the cartidge can come out like a little rocket and that would not feel good besides flooding the house. The other thing is to install it backwards, which is not as serious as it sounds. It merely means that the hot water will come out of the right side and the cold water on the left. To cure that you take the handle off, DO NOT REMOVE THE CARTRIDGE, (that is in capitals because I have had customers work for hours trying to change it by removing and rotating the cartridge), and turn the stem half way around, and reinstall the handle.
