    Posted: 20 April 2022 at 01:52
Hi All
I have a leaking Y fitting (snapped off) from the seawater intake under the sink in the bathroom. 
I can't get my hands in to replace it as the shelf that sits below the top drawer is in the way. 

Does anyone know how to remove the shelf? It looks to be epoxied in! It is not structural, but does have the drawer runners on it.

Also does anyone know the size of the Y fitting? I think the valve is TruDesign, and my guess the pipe is 19mm?

Any help appreciated! 
Thanks team 320.

Here's the shelf (pipes behind back lip)

here's the snapped connector (Y fitting)


Here's a close up of the pipe behind the shelf:

The interior of your Hanse is glued/epoxied a lot of places to reduce building costs.
The solution is sometimes to use an ax or eventually finer tools to get access.
Here are pictures of the access hole I had to make under the stove to get access to the compressor under the refrigerator.
I suggest to change the Y from plastic to metal.

I removed the back side of the shelf  by hammering it gently.
It came out easily and I could work better behind that in order to change the seacock.

Thanks for that. I'll take your advice and try a mallet first, and then maybe a multitool to cut the joints. I'd like to be able to remove it easily in future, so might remake the shelf with brackets that unscrew. Cheers

magnu, already answered you in your  own topic. Fuses are the switches, your switchpanel. What’s not clear yet and how can we help?

Hi mystudio I did not see your answer ? Maybe need to learn this form .
Oki so the switch is the fuse to.
But if the lamp is green? Is the fuse Oki then?
And if the green lamp is not Oki, then fuse is broken?

Hi All

A quick update. I ended up using a multitool to remove most of the back of the shelf. Full access to pipes is now possible through the space- though fiddly. I won;t see the back missing with the drawer re-installed, so I'll leave it without the back for any future needs.

Everything is/was epoxied in, and had screws as well, which weren't accessible as the were on the exterior sides inside the unit.

I've replaced the Y fitting with a tru design fibreglass reinforced one so it should last a little longer -19mm size.

Last tip: Soaking in very hot water was very helpful in getting the old fittings out of the pipe!


Above the finished state.
Below the best tool for the job:




The tru design fitting in all of it's glory:
