Remove Sink

Not sure of the mechanics of this drain.The ABS has sides for a wrench but seems to be glued to the pipe.Usually there are threads.There is a metal nut above but no room fo pipe wrench.Is this stock or new install?Could I go in from the top?

You need to loosen the low profile gray nut just below the sink and then from the top use two screw drivers to twist out the drain basket.

Lee, Low profile spanner wrench I guess would work for the nut(not much room).My bathtub four prong is too big so will try the screwdriver approach from the top.Does this drain look original to you?I have never seen one that was all glued.
Thanks as always Lee.Steve

What you should use for that drain nut is this wrench, available from most hardware stores:

The tool Terry suggested should work. You may have to try different angels, flip it over ect.. As you spin out the basket that gray nut will want to tighten. Just something to keep in mind.

I took the whole unit out with counter top attached. It was a little tricky with the drain. My counter top was screwed on with flat head screw in the door frames (front) and with long screws in the back through the board that holds the top part of the counter to the wall. Hope this helps.

Lee,I have the screws on the back board holding the counter.Did you lift over the furnace or remove the furnace first?I look for hidden screws 3 times and usually find one on the third.Thanks Lee.

From my understanding the furnace was in before the cabinet so you should be able to just move the whole thing away from the wall without the furnace being in the way. Once you find all the screws. The drain should be the only tricky part when you remove it.

Pop-up drain removal

The underside of my bathroom sink looks like the pictures displayed. I can't figure out how to get the pop-up drain out of the sink. It turns about a half turn to be up or down. How do you get it all the way out?
