Exclamation Drain pipe for kitchen sink between P-trap

Drain pipe for kitchen sink between P-trap and coupler in wall rotted through and stuck to coupler. There is plumbers putty on threads...and rust.

Please tips for breaking the connection free. Noted that the pipe is rusted through so it is hard to get the pipe wrench to grip properly. Any suggestion would be great since it is almost 1am here and we are needing to get up early for a family event tomorrow.

PS we were taking out an old dish washer that didn't work and adding a portable dishwasher instead. Noticed a leak under the sink and wa-lla...an all day saturday event under the sink and running to the store to replace this piping with PVC...just can't get that old piping out of there...UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you talking about a threaded nipple the comes out of the wall which the trap connects to it?

No there is a 45 degree coupling coming out of the wall and the nipple threads into the coupling at the wall.

This is a old house and things were done wrong in it so we now have to fix there errors!

What I do in this situation is, using a sawsall cut the 45 el off this is so you can see where the next threaded nipple is at, then with the sawsall cut the top put the the nipple that screw into the fitting in the wall, cut only the to the female thread and not any deeper, not with a hammer, hit the side of the nipple, this will make the nipple collapse inward freeing the threads, then nipple should come out easy. Now you just install a male adapter pipe and fitting that you need with ABS or PVC, reconnect the new p-trap.

We are starting with cutting it off with a dremel tool...no way the sawsall will fit in there. The threads or nipple is actually in the wall...so this should be interesting...sorry I wasn't to clear in my earlier post.
