Brass Drain Body and Cast Iron Flange


I have a jasom brass drain body and cast iron flange in a standup shower that I need to remove. The flange is very rusty and I can't tell how the drain body is attached, either screwed on or soldered? I have a leak somewhere that is seeping into the subfloor around the flange and dripping down to the kitchen below. There is tile around the drain. Do I need to start removing the tile to get at the drain? I am not sure where the leak is coming from exactly, I am guessing from around the flange somewhere. Do I need to replace the flange, drain, and trap?

it could be the tile not the drain. i would pour water down the drain from a bucket to make sure it is the drain. if no leak then plug drain and fill bottom of shower up with 2 to 3 inches of water and see what happens. could also be shower head pipe
