Replacing Bath Tub Drain


Might have been silconed/caulked in..... could try a heat gun (I would not use a torch).

I've usually been able to break them loose, but I do remember one that I had to twist apart with needle nose very carefully, trying to maintain the shoe threads..... (I got lucky.. got it out... it was on slab with a CI tub) Dremel scoring (not cutting all way thru) the flange and threads helped...

GOOD LUCK
