sink removal

Post by samleeds on Mon Oct 10, 2016 4:21 pm

how can I remove the sink in my bathroom. It fold down and is hinged with pivot points. Ive tried pushing the sink inwards to the center to see if the side clear the pivot points but no.

The side pins are located in a slide on each side. Lift it part way and pull towards you.

Be careful  with it as the pivot points can be damaged, pull it half way down then lift out the brackets, mine does, otherwise did a previous owner make a permanent job and fixed it so that it doesn`t come out, as it is usually easy to get out.

Good luck.

Ive just tried prising the pins from the side but they wont come away far enough to give a release.

I have just been out to my van, the pins are on the sink and there are the holes in the side of the vanity unit, for the pins to fit into, I held both sides tipped slightly and pulled gently towards me and it was out. Hope you can sort yours.

I just sorted it. The 4 screws holding the unit to the wall need removing and it falls forward and reveals the sinks soak away where there was 2 pieces of soap and a toothpaste cap lurking. Obviously stopping the water from draining away as fast as it should but now all srted, thanks guys.
