    Good video, I am planning on trying this soon and was wondering if it
    can be done without removing the P Trap as mine is glued. See images
    provide of my setup, mine does not have a popper so that is less work
    for me :) Thanks for any info or tips.Paul

    Yes, it looks like the very top of the p-trap has a nut that you can loosen. You then unscrew the nut directly under the sink and the drain should come up and out of the p-trap. All the replacement drains I have seen at the hardware store have poppers, so you may have to drill a hole for the popper push rod.
