Thanks for all the replies, there is some very good information here that hopefully I can use and others when they encounter a similar situation.

Try using a flashlight and mirror to see what your dealing with. Then employ the braille method. I have changed out more than 2 dozen faucets in my lifetime and have done all but the first one blind. Another idea is after the install leave pressure in the system, lay paper towels on the floor and check them for the next couple hours for any really slow leaks.

Bath Faucet Replacement

Forget the special tool, pull the lav/faucet out and replace both. I just did that on our 2000 Discovery. Delta faucet $90.00, new lav $29.00, you can get pex fittings, straight or 90 degree angle.Click image for larger version

WOW, they really managed to get those supply line connections up there behind the sink, didn't they. If it were me, I'd trim the supply lines and get the connections down to a more accessible place when I replaced the faucet.

The supply lines look like what I described earlier. That's a standard size faucet connection. What you may find on the new faucet is the hookup lines coming down from the faucet may be larger, fully threaded "pipes" that feed through the center and have a large nut and washer on the outside. It will work the same, you just won't have the small nut and large washer like the current one. It's all going to depend on what your new faucet looks like. The plastic fittings on the end of the supply lines will hook up directly to the "pipes".

Just don't panic if you can't find a replacement with the copper tubing like the old one. The other type hooks up exactly the same, it just doesn't have the copper tube coming down. The only thing that matters is the spacing of the two feed lines (normally 4" for a bathroom sink) and if the supply PEX lines have enough slack to reach the new faucet.
