    I have manage to get the tub removed.
    The lead pipe to the P-trap is cracked.
    I am unfamiliar with this.
    Any suggestions on how to remove the lead pipe would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    lead

    How you remove it would depend on how it is connected to the "P" trap, but most likely the connector unscrews.
