First step: Turn off the water to the kitchen sink using the shutoff valve below the sink.
Disconnect the water lines from the faucet using an adjustable wrench.
Place a bucket under the sink to catch remaining water and disconnect the drain pipe.
Remove the drawers from the cabinets underneath the counter top.
Unload items from at least the top shelf of the bottom cabinets to gain access to the underside of the counter top.
Remove any items from the top of the counter top.
Cut through the seal on the caulk around the sink as well as any edges that have caulk, such as along the wall or edge of the back splash, using a putty knife, box cutter or screwdriver.
Scrape away as much caulk as possible with a putty knife or flat head screwdriver.
Pull the sink out of the counter top and set it aside.
Unscrew the counter top from the underside, accessing the screws from the inside of the cabinets.
Lift the counter top up and away from the cabinet base.
