PVC coupling problem - Removing old connection

I wanted to say thank you for all of the advice that I have received from these forums. I have been lurking for a while and now it is time to ask a question.

I was trying to remove an existing PVC pipe from another coupling, it seems that it is secure as can be the glue is holding.

I really need to get a new pipe into this bathroom for my new drain, so I opened up the wall to try remove the fitting that is in the wall but it seems to be connected to another bathroom on the other side of the world.

Before I go to far, I would like to get some advice about how to get the exiting pipe unglued or how to remove the existing fitting and what parts I would need to repair the job.

A big set of picture can be found at:


Any help would be appreciated.

One of the experts will likely chime in here with the best correct way to fix your problem. Since it's a drain pipe and is black, it's probably ABS rather than PVC. I can tell you this, though: there's no "ungluing" plastic pipe. I'm guessing you'll have to cut out an entire section.
