Willie owns a century old studio cottage in downtown Chino, California. Willie wanted to solve a simple faucet replacement in his bathroom. The aging bathroom faucet needed to be replaced because it had been leaking for a long time.  

This post shows ten steps to removing the drain system and vanity cabinet.

Step 1: Fig.1 through fig.3 shows the installation of the sink faucet parts.

and plunger pipe
Step 2: Take apart the parts to the grey plastic threaded flange. Put the chrome to piece into the sink and let the bottom come below the sink.
Step 3: Place plumber putty underneath the grey plastic flange to create a seal between it and the sink. 
Step 4: Fig.4 shows the black rubber beveled edge that needs to be placed facing up on the threaded flange, next place the white flat washer and the plastic mounting nut on the grey threaded flange. Tightened but not to tight otherwise the seal may be damaged or the sink could crack.

Step 5: Rotate the drain tube until the opening on the side is facing the back of the vanity. That the hole for the ball pipe (plunger adjustment)
Step 6: Insert the ball tube inside the grey drain tube, but hold on to the plunger with your fingers, inside the sink, and turn the plunger so the ball tube can insert into the plunger. You will feel the plunger go up and down if the ball tube is inside the plunger rod.
Step 7: Now Tightened the hex cap screw on the tip of the ball drain tube to the grey plastic flange. Pipe Dope could be used on the plastic flange to create a seal between each part.
Step 8: Next attach the existing P-trap to the ball drain tube. The P-trap will have its own plastic washer and pipe nut. All the sink pipes now need to be tightened and made sure that they do not leak. If leakage occurs return to the leaking pipe and tightened the nut around the joint.

Step 9: Fig.4 shows the faucet is installed.
