I'm in the process of doing a basement remodel and found that a 2" PVC 90 bend that was coming up from the cement floor for our bathroom sink drain broke. How can I get the broken piece from the one 90 out of the other.

If it won't come out, you might have to cut both pieces further back and replace both 90's.

The problem is that only part of the lower 90 visible. The rest is in the cement floor.

See if you can find a rubber sleeve with hose clamps on it. They make them for repairing pipes such as yours.

Breaking the floor and using a mission or fernco coupling works good. Patching the floor is an easy step. But you want to get to regular pipe, then reinstall the new fittings.
Good Luck

Thanks for the suggestions. I used a fernco coupling and everything is working great!

Thanks again
