shower line replacement

Will put this out again. Does anyone know of away to replace the waterlines to the shower valve without removing the shower? I have a 1980 24ft Caravella with rear bath. They are the last lines I need to replace to have all new PEX.

I do not know the floor plan.

If you are lucky, the shower plumbing runs through an inside wall, and the faucet side of the shower enclosure is secured against that inside wall. Look for an access hole, which may be covered either by a decorative, framed hanging, or by a plain piece of panel.

Otherwise, shower enclosures are usually made from two or three molded panels, which may be removed one at a time. Be careful to cut through caulk and sealant at the joints and along the wall and top, so the panel will not break when you pull it away from the wall.

I wish I could be more helpful. A couple of pics would help.

I did manage to get to the lines by going through the small cabinet behind the toilet. Not much room there. Wouldn't you know it the connections to the shower valves are different then the sinks. Came down with the flu so not much going to get done for a little while.
