How can I get this kitchen faucet off?


I purchased this faucet: http://www.homedepot.com/p/KOHLER-Cr...0-VS/203012966 and it seems like an easy enough installation. The bottom of the faucet looks like this:

Seems like all I have to do is screw something in and it will attach the sink to my counter top.

My old faucet:

Doesn't seem like it has the same mechanics. This is what I see under my kitchen counter top:

How do I get that off? I've tried twisting it as if the shaft is threaded but I don't think it was loosening at all.

There is a big nut directly under your brass plate below the faucet. Hit it with some pb blaster let it soak and use a basin cock wrench.

You need a basin wrench to loosen the nut below the brass piece.

Knock that brass plate loose. It's not screwed on. Then remove the nut underneath. I'm no plumber but that's what I've seen.

Is there a nut at the blue text? If so, that is holding the faucet in place. Remove it and the plate will come off too.
The threaded pipe- green text will not come off if you try to loosen it.

If you loosen the blue nut then I think the yellow clip will pop/slide out and the faucet will pull up.

Unscrew the water line for the spout and get it out of your way----then a deep socket can be used to undo that nut.

Most plumbers have a collection of the manufacturers installation wrenches---handy to have---

LOL One pound of learning requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it. sorry to be blunt wrenches aren't for everyone. if your told three times on how to remove something and you have to keep asking maybe its best left to someone who can.
