Remove The Garbage Disposal
Using a screwdriver to dismount garbage disposal
Aaron Stickley
Insert a flat screwdriver into the lower mounting ring and turn it 1/4 turn counter clockwise to unlock it. The disposal will come straight down so be ready to catch it.

What is left is the mounting assembly. To remove it loosen the three screws first, then use a flat screw driver to pop the snap ring out of position. The rest of the mounting assembly will come off easily and you can pull the top piece out from the top side of the sink.
