Replacing Pedestal Base

I have to replace a pedestal sink base. I was able to find one that matched the sink. What is the best way of doing this. Can I just unscrew the nuts holding the sink to the wall and slip the base in or do I also have to loosen up on the plumbing underneath the sink? Thanks for you help.

I would suggest removing the sink trap. This way you are not putting any undue pressure on the piping. Be careful that the sink is actually "supported " by the wall anchors. Sometimes the anchors only go through drywall to keep the unit from tipping over and are not structurally sound for holding up the sink with the base removed. Just something to think about. Good luck.
