    Hi Amy, if you look under the sink you will see two water lines that will need to be turned off and then unscrewed from the bottom of your faucet. After that look way up, right beneath the bottom of those faucets under the sink, will be two large nuts (generally they are plastic depending on how old the faucet is) that you will need to unscrew. Then just lift your old faucet up and out of there.

    Then screw the water lines on to your new faucet and then thread it down in place of the old faucet. Attach it with the washers that came with it (be careful not to over tighten) reatach the water lines and turn the water line.

    Hi Amy: Before you remove the faucet, be sure you have a cookie sheet with a towel in it to catch any water that may remain in the lines. When you put in the new faucet, use some plumbers putty to put around the inside of the edge of the faucet to keep out leaks, if it doesn't come with a gasket or rubber ring. The new faucet should come with all of the instructions you need. This is really easy to do, unless you have to lay on your back and you have a cat or dog. They must inspect every move you make and, most likely, nap on your chest. Good luck, you can do this, I have faith in you!
