You need a basin wrench. easier to look it up than for me to explain it.

Basin wrenches are hinged at the top and open up to fit all sizes. You might not have the clearance around the nut t fit the head of the wrench. You might have to remove the sink to get at it unfortunately.

Look for an adjustable wrench of suitable size in your nearest shop.

Re: help needed in plumbing
If you can, remove the pipework from the bend/'t' piece up to the tap. Soak the nut in WD40 or PlusGas overnight and then see if you can grip the nut enough to turn it.

It is possible the nut and pipework were fitted to the sink before installation if there is very little room. In that case you will need a thin wall box key (spanner) to fit over the outside of the nut which you can do if you have removed the pipe. good hardware shop or plumbers' merchant should have one.

Hope this makes sense

Take a pipe wrench and turn counter clockwise until you hear a snapping sound.

Then go down to your hardware store and buy a new facet.

Tap it hard repeatedly to loosen
Then suck it up and go for the gold

Just replaced my basement sink assembly two weeks ago
Took me 3 hours

I didn't even cuss, 'that much' LOL

The right tools are essential

Robogrips work very well
