Sink Removal

I need to remove my sink so that I can get to the plumbing for the shower. When the PO replaced the faucet and some other bath work, he ran out of steam and didn't reconnect the hose to the shower. They never used it so it wasn't an issue for them. We do so I would like to reconnect the plumbing. I assume that it should be a simple matter of lift the sink up, attach the shower hose and reset the sink. The problem is I don't follow how to disconnect and lift the sink up. Any advice?

I have been working on a bathroom remodel in my 86, a few years newer but could be the same. I have a sink on a counter top. Is that what you have? Or is int part of a large plastic formed counter top?

In the sink on a counter top case, there were four screws that tighten a metal clamp. There is also a nut that clamps the drain pipe. After that the sink will pull up, hopefully there is some bedding compound holding it; not super tight but firmly. You can just push up and it should slowly release.

Unfortunately it's part of a large formed plastic counter top. And now it's even more exciting since the supply line that was (past tense) attached to the sink blew off last night and I can't get to it from underneath to reattach it. HELP!
