    Best answer is don't. But it is just pressed in. See those little slots on the sides? A screwdriver there would just pop it up, but the base and the drain are in jeopard of scratching. If it were chrome, you just put a screwdriver into the holes and pop it. Can't do that with white.


    Best bet....pop it out, then replace with chrome.

    drain

    Make a hook out of a wire clothes hanger. Stick it through one of the holes and pull it up.

    thanks
    but those slots at the side are NOT indented, nothing for the screwdriver to get under!

    That's why you should try HJ's suggestion.
