Question Need advice for replacing faucet line

A cold water line under a sink in the bathroom is leaking and needs to be replaced. Can anyone tell me what size and type wrench I need to use to get the hose loose?

Do I remove the top part of the line from under the sink or do I have to lift up on the sink and reach it that way? Will that be a tight fit to get a wrench in at the top from under the sink? Is there something I can use if the nut won't turn?


I found this at Home Depot's site, will it work for me? If not ... what would?

How hard a job would this be for someone that has never done it before?

Thanks for reading my post.

There is no need to remove the sink. You need a faucet wrench. Replace the entire flex connector.

If that valve leaks after turning it off then it should be rebuilt or replaced. A small adjustable wrench should do the trick to remove the braided line from the faucet end.

Question Is that the right faucet line?

Can anyone tell me if that is the correct faucet line for the sink in question? I have a link to in my last post? Is there something I can use if the nut is stuck and won't turn?

Thanks for reading my post.

The sink has nothing to do with the line you use because the line goes to the faucet not the sink. Faucets are a standard " pipe thread so they aren't a real concern either. Most sink supply valves are either 3/8" compression or 3/8" flare or. The two types are not interchangeable. However your link is to a universal supply line so it should fit due to the adapters.

Never seen one stick but a cheater pipe on the basin wrench handle should do it if needed.

Note toilet supply lines look a lot like faucet supply lines bur won't work. They have a 7/8" end not a " pipe thread end.
