Question DetailsAsked on 11/6/2019

Sink faucet is leaking. Copper pipes are under sink for water supply lines. Do I cut those out to replace faucet?

Copper supply lines for kitchen sink. Can those be cut out to replace faucet or how do best go about changing faucet with copper supply water lines? Hole to get into faucet area is very small & don't see how you could access it to tighten my nuts up. So wondered if I cut the copper lines unscrew them & installed new lines when putting faucet in if this would be ok, saw something similar on you tube, he used a welding torch to cut copper lines, we don't have welding torch though. Just don't want to cut the copper lines then have it be a mistake. I think lines are about 7 years old or older possibly. I have never seen a sink like this with these copper lines and have no idea if it is safe to cut them out or how to cut them out. Appears this is only way to change the faucet however.
