help. girl question (kitchen faucet removal)

trying to remove the old kitchen faucet -- lying on my back underneath the sink, looking up, trying to use a wrench to loosen the nuts that are on the bolt that keep me from removing the faucet, do I want to move the handle of the wrench counter clockwise, or clockwise? not that it really matters anyway, since the stupid nut won't move in either direction, but just in case . . . .

thanks.

As you are looking at the nut, turn it counter-clockwise. If the nuts are metal, you may have use some WD-40 to loosen them. Good luck.

If you aren't already trying with one, buy, borrow or rent a 'basin wrench.' It looks like a funky spring loaded pipe wrench on the end of a bar, and is so much easier than trying to use any other type of wrench.

Use Mister Dragon's advice on the WD40 as well.
