Remove And Replace The Sink trap
Place a bucket under the sink trap to catch water and debris.
Place a towel over the top slip nut and unscrew it with a pair of channel locks. This will prevent putting marks on the nut or damaging it due to slipping.
Remove the bottom slip nut in the same manner. Be sure to remove the washers from the sink trap where the slip nuts attached.
Place the old washers from the slip nuts on the new sink trap. Wrap the threads on the new trap with Teflon tape.
Position the new trap into place and thread both slip nuts onto the trap. Tighten down both nuts with the channel locks.
Run water in the sink and check for leaks.
