I have purchased a new faucet and plan to install it on a pedestal
sink. There is about 3 - 3 1/2 inches clearance from the pedestal
base to the back of the wall. Upon visual inspection, I appear to
have enough room to replace the faucet and supply lines. What
concerns me is trying to replace the pop-up stopper which rests inside
the pedestal - I can't see the connection to the waste line. Is there
a trick to replacing the pop-up stopper in a pedestal sink? I have
replaced pop-up stoppers before, but I doubt I can replace it without
seeing what I am doing! I know my limitations and am willing to call
in a pro to replace the entire setup if attempting this will just
cause me aggravation. Just wondering, what would be a typical rate
for a pro to replace a bathroom faucet on a pedestal sink?
Any help would be appreciated.
a lot of times the pedestal just comes off and the basin is left screwed to
the wall. if it was installed correctly and you don't lean on the basin, you
can leave it installed.

Thanks for the tip. I had assumed the basin needed to be removed.
Removing the pedestal would make things a lot easier. I guess I'll
find out quickly if it was not installed correctly!! I guess some
support 2x4s underneath will help support the basin while the work is
