Did you pull the retaining clip?

The retaining clip has to be removed. They make a tool that fits over the stem that you turn back and forth to loosen the rubber seals on each side of the stem. Once they have broke free from the sides of the faucet body the stem pulls out. The good thing about Moen single lever faucets is that you can correct the hot/left cold/right easily by rotating the stem 180 degrees.
