There are two bolts on either side of the sink. Remove them and lift the sink off of the base. Sometimes, depending on who installed it, you can slide the base out without removing the sink. Hope this helps.

We have the Kokols Wallmount Bathroom Pedestal Glass Sink Vanity Combo but the p-trap keeps leaking. How do we fix it?

Remove it, (Don't forget water will come out when you uncscrew it!!!) clean it thoroughly, especially the ends, clean and check seating of any rubber washers to make sure they are fitted correctly and not being distorted when the rings are tightened, reseat it with no force (it should sit naturally without having to force it in) and tighten rings. There are lots of videos on youtube showing how. If you cant stop it leaking buy a new trap. It's worth while looking very carefully for exactly where the leak is before you remove the trap, it might be coming from higher up. Repair Leaky Sink Drain Pipe

How do you remove the pedestal on a duravit basin to access drain pipe

After you take the sink off there might be bolts to the floor. If not the pedastal is probably just caulked to the floor. Just pull on it and it will break loose.

How do i fix my leaky faucet?

You will need to shut-off the water valves underneath the sink and remove the faucet handle(s). Once you do this, you will see the rubber "seats" which need to be replaced. Just pop them out and replace them with new seats and replace the handle(s). Turn on the valves underneath the sink and your faucet should be all set!

Trying to fix bathroom faucet (Monticello)

Hi, If the sink was installed right ...then they used 100% silicone. The only way to get them apart is by carefully prying them apart. If the screw is steel you might try a small magnet on a string or a telescoping magnet. Hope this Helps, RSMITH972278 P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE

Our bathroom pedestal sink is very slow drain and clogging -2 questiions: do you have to disassemble and take off sink mounts and remove from wall to get to elbow joint? I do not know how to disengage...

You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.

Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.
