one piece tub and surround

How do I remove a one piece tub and surround and replace with a regular tub if I do not have access to the drain from below or the side?

Remove the overflow plate and tub drain shoe from the tub to start with, use a screwdriver to pry the rubber away from the drain assembly so that when you remove the tub you do not pull/distort the piping.

Make sure when you install the new tub, always set the tub in a bed of mortar, along with making sure that you set the new drain assembly to the new specs of the tub. Otherwise you will have a difficult time in the final steps of replacing the tub.
