Having made provision for any water spillage by using a container placed below the trap, you can now go ahead and unscrew the nuts at the inlet and outlet of the U-bend. You should be able to do this by hand, or, if not, with the use of a wrench, once this is done and the nuts are loose you can remove the trap. A professional plumbing service like Belsize Park Plumbers provide expert help and guaranteed work. Undo the cap that holds the ball and pivot rod within the pop-up body and remove the ball. Compression of the sprung clip on the clevis will allow withdrawal of the pivot rod. Remove the stopper for the new part. Now, from underneath, undo the locking nut on the body of the stopper. Stick the body through the hole to free up and then remove both the flange and body. Screw the locknut down onto the new pop-up drain unit and then the flat washer and the rubber gasket. Make sure that the side with the bevel is facing upwards.

Put Teflon tape onto the top of the threaded body. Seal the flange with some putty and place beneath the drain flange. From below, put the opening for the pivot exactly toward the middle of the sink and pull the body right down, seating the flange correctly. Screw the locknut and washer assembly up tight. Keep the flange still so as not to break the putty seal, a Belsize Park Plumber has the experience and the latest equipment to carry out the job. Put the pop-up stopper in the drain hole so its posts bottom most hole is the closest to the rear of the sink. Place the nylon washer with the bevel in the opening at the back of the new body with the bevel looking backwards. Place the cap at the rear of the ball on the pivot rod. With the spring clip sandwiching the hole that is in the clevis, push the long end of the rod through the clip and clevis. Put the ball end of the pivot rod in the body of the pop up and into the hole in the stem of the stopper. Screw the cap on to the pop-up body over the ball. Put the cap behind the ball on the pivot rod as shown. Sandwich a hole in the clevis with the spring clip. Now push the longest end of the rod through the clip and clevis. Put the end of the pivot rod with the ball fitted into the body opening and also into the hole in the stem of the stopper. Screw the cap on to the pop-up body over the ball.
