Replacing subfloor under a stud?


Most often I use a Toe Kick saw and cut along the bottom plate, leaving the subfloor under the plate.
In a pinch you can cut it out along the plate with an ossilating saw or a sawsall with a short wood cutting blade.
Why does it all need to come out?

Don't know for sure if will have to come out.A cool leaked all over floor and went unnoticed and continued to do so. Some black mold in corner.

Post a picture. In most cases just some mildicide will take care of it. A lot depends on just how big an area it is.
