Cool

Please be more specific about what your problem is and what you need to repair, so that we can try to help you. There is more than one part and secton to a tub drain assembly that might need repair or replacement.
(Just stay on this same thread on the same subject.)
Here is one type of bathtub drain assembly, for instance:

I have a bath tub with a similar problem:

The tub has a drain plug that is mounted under the faucet. It has a pull-type handle that clicks down to lock it into place and stop the drain.

This part has now broken and I believe it is causing a small leak into the downstairs apartment/condo.

Is this something that can be repaired easily, or would this be a job for a professional?

Cool

If you can unbolt the face plate, you may be able to pull the entire drain plug assembly out, and repair or replace it.
Good Luck!

I had thought about that, but I am concerned about being able to get to things, without having to open up the wall.

Do you think that would be an issue?

All you can do is see if things go right, things can go wrong, it's away of life.
