leak in wall/Remove wainscotting

My husband and I have recently installed wainscotting in our bathroom. And now the sink is leaking...I believe behind the wall and dripping down into the basement. Is it possible to fix the leak without removing wainscotting? How can we remove the wainscotting without damaging the boards and wall? Your advise is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums!

If the leak is in the wall cavity - can you get to it from the other side of the wall?

Thank you. We actually had the plumbers out and they were able to remove the wainscotting with only minor damages to the wall, which were fortunately covered up by the paneling. We did try and get to it from the other side, but since it is back by a set of stairs we could see the pipes but not access them. Thank you again for the idea though, because both my husband and I did not think of this.
Thanks again.
