Best way to remove a rusted faucet?

brussoAugust 10, 2008

I am replacing faucets in three bath rooms. I have one that is killing me as far as removing it. It is in three pieces and they are rusted solid. I already tried liquid wrench, WD40, basin wrench, hammer, etc. I was told that I can use a sawzall but I am afraid of damaging the the cultured marble sink and a sawzall is a bit clumsy to use on this project. So, what is the best way to cut off a faucet from the top side of the sink?

Remove the vanity counter top and cut the faucet from the bottom side.

Agree with handymac.

Use a sawzall to cut the faucet loose from the bottom side,
