Shower Stall Removal

I have a triangular,sky-lighted shower stall with a house type shower valve assembly and head...the plumbing lines are installed between the shower and the outside wall, there are no access panels to these lines and one or both leak (leak is apparent outside of coach and on carpet next to shower) when pressurized (shower head turned off)

Is it hard to remove the entire stall enclosure and reinstall, or would it be better to figure out a different way to access the pipe for removal and replacement?

Potential different ways: make a small opening in the adjacent lavatory sink cabinet (might not give me enough room), or cut access panel in shower stall interior and reattach pannel and seal after pipe replacement. Not visually appealing.

There should be an access panel close enough to remove the plumbing and faucet for repairs depending on the floor plan. You say there is a cabinet adjacent; look there for a panel with screws that can be removed.

Thanks for the reply. Have checked, no access panels...it appears lines are actually within outside wall, directly behind shower...supply lines go down in Lav Sink 3 inch elevated floor over to elevated shower floor...appears no way to access through discreet access panel. How hard is it to remove entire stall and reinstall afer repair of lines? Thanks. (The current plumbing configuration to shower was not original manufacturer design, done later, maybe with replacement shower stall installation)

Removing the stall is a much bigger job but not too bad. I have yet to see a shower faucet that could not be accessed without pulling the shower surround.
