Hi, I cannot get the sink assembly out of the sink. There is no nut underneath, it seems the top and bottom of the assembly screw together. It has been in there about 15years I reckon. Any help on how to unscrew it?
There looks to be 4 small recesses inside that you could a tool into and try and unscrew from below, but I don’t have anything to hold it in place.

Make sure you use your “removing excess plaster/brick” third tier chisels; and not your “fine cabinetry hinges” chisels!

It doesn’t appear you’ve missed anything. You’re going to need a box spanner or deep socket to remove the cartridge.
