Clips attach to rim and hold sink from below, and rim holds sink from above. Remove clips and sink will drop down. Then use putty knife to remove rim from countertop. New sinks will probably not fit same opening, new sinks are slightly smaller, so measure before removing old sink.
you need to remove the moen cartridge. first, remove handle. at the top of stem, there is a U shaped retainer clip. it hard to see,use a small knife blade to catch the closed side of clip and slide clip out. once clip is removed, you should be able to pull cartridge out with a twist and pull motion. if it wont come out,that way dont pull to the point where you brake cartridge. that means replacing faucet. in extreme cases, you ca buy a moen stem puller for about $15. once stem i out simply coat with stem grease and replace cartridge. when replacing retaining clip, keep a pushing in pressure on end of stem to allow clip to slide into place. it iseasier to do than it sounds
Just weight the sink with water after running a bead of caulk under the lip of the sink. Finish the bead of caulk before it skins over and then drain the sink after 24 hours. I personally wouldn't worry about using the clips, the caulk will hold the sink securely, and if you ever need to remove it, allow for a much easier removal.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I have spent several hours trying to solve the same problem with a Franke Granite double basin sink. The clips for this Franke sink appear to be a piece of engineering garbage, and the instructions are utterly useless - A huge piece of paper with a template, and tiny pictures that look like they were drawn by a kindergartner with a crayon. The instructions for using the clips --oh there are none - other than a blurry picture in which the clips could fit inside this period (.). Lots of other people appear to have the same issue. I like the Franke sink, but without proper mounting hardware, this franke sink is no better than the poorly made clips, and the Franke Sink horrible instructions that it came with.
The headlights are held down by two wing nutplastic bolt on top and the corner lamp is held on by one wing nut bolt from the headlight assembly. Remove the plastic wing nuts from the headlight and corner lamp, once all three wing nuts are removed, the headlight can be removed by pulling straight up and take note of the clips at the bottom of the headlight to where that will slide back into the body frame. The corner light assembly also just pulls straight out and take note to where the clips slide back into the body frame when re-installing the units back together. Take care not to pull to hard that you damage the wire harness, remember to disconnect the wire harness from the light socket at the back of the units. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to try to explain in another way if i didn't make sense. It's harder to explain then to show.
Most GM cars have plastic covers that just pull off and clip back on. Don't yank it hard enough to break it though. If it isn't the clip on type, there should be an obvious bolt head showing. If that doesn't work tug on it around the edges and wherever you feel resistance is where there will be a bolt or wing nut you need to remove.
My progress to date (20090127):
1 Turn off the gas supply to the oven
2 Turn off the electricity supply
3 Remove the oven linings
4 Remove the storage drawer
5 Remove the three screws holding on the bottom trim and the trim
6 Crank up the front roller
7 Pull out the oven carefully making sure the gas hose and electrical lead are long enough and not caught
8 Working from the rear of the Rangemaster, for the right-hand oven, remove the four screws on the corners of the large cover plate at the back of the oven about half way down on the left-hand side as viewed from the back.
9 Remove the cover plate.
10 Go to the front of the oven. Above the burner assembly, towards the left is a thin metal rod running front to back. This is held in place by a clip at the back and by the hole in the metal frame at the front. Remove the metal clip at the back using a pair of long-nosed pliers. Retain the clip.
11 This should release the metal rod (flame sensing device) and you should be able to push it through the hole and out at the back. It is attached to a long copper wire.
12 Go to the back of the range. You should be able to work the wire back through the hole in the rear metal plate and up to the gas valve. The wire is held in place at the gas valve by a bent clip on the rear right. Carefully bend this clip back towards the oven to release the wire.
13 The wire goes down under the gas valve and to a threded bolt end into the bottom of the gas valve ad the bolt is held in place using a locking nut.
14 Remove the locking nut using a small spanner. The threded bolt should now turn, with the aid of long-nosed pliers.
15 The next trick is to remove this threaded bolt on the end of the copper wire and I have not figured out how to do that. It will unscrew a good way but becomes tight and will not come out, as though something inside the valve is holding it in place. Could it be that the flame sensing device has to be removed and inserted from inside the gas valve? If so, what a daft piece of engineering this is.
