Question

Replacing a faucet...


I bought a new faucet this weekend to replace the old one that originally came with this house 20+ years ago. The instructions with the new faucet were incredibly vague, so I've been following YouTube videos and the like to try and install this thing. Unfortunately I've hit a snag... When replacing the popup drain, all the videos show the removal of the p trap by turning a couple of nuts. I don't have any of those (pic below). How do I go about removing this?

You have a glued trap, I can not think of a single good reason why it's that way.
If it was mine I'd cut it out and replace it with one like this.

Going to have to cut off the pipe closest to the wall and add an adaptor.

I like the glue in. It never leaks

You might be able to weasel it out of there by loosing the two nuts and lifting it up enough to unscrew the top drain

That is , of course the top part is threaded. if it is one piece then you will have to do what Joecaption said.
