There doesn't appear to be a simple way to disassemble an old pop up drain. There isn't a lot of space between the body, nut and flange. What's the best way to proceed? Remove the body from the flange and then the nut? What is the best tool to grip when there isn't much to hang on to?

Any help would be gratefully received.

Channel Locks or a large pair of vise grips.

Thankyou for replying. I have already tried both but i can't seem to get it loose. Is there anything else i can do? What course of action do i take if it will not loosen?

Thanks again

Cold chisel and hammer or Dremmel tool with diamond cutter. Used these often on my plumbing and on the car from time to time.
