Forum Title: Large & stubborn nut. Help!
Hello, I cannot seem to remove this nut with a wrench or regular sized basin wrench. It's the nut actually holding down the faucet. Any advice on how I should try to remove would help so much. Thanks!

easiest way is to disconnect the water and drain. pull the sink from the hole. if nut will not budge, cut the nut in half

yes, use a sharp knife. cut the caulk around the sink. pull it up. then clean all the old caulk off, recaulk the sink when finished literally, cut the caulk, all the way around. pull the sink when you recaulk....use dap , and a sponge. apply dap, wipe with a damp sponge, rinse sponge recaulk as necessarry. wipe with clean damp sponge repeat. till a nice bead all the way around sink caulk, wet wipe,rinse, caulk, wet wipe,rinse, caulk etc
