remove garbage disposal

Customer Question

I am trying to remove an Emerson garbage disposal. The wrench won't turn the disposal to unloosen it and have bent the metal. I've tried a screwdriver, hammer. Nothing works. Is there a special wrench or a trick to this? Thanks.

Reply to Michael L...........JA Construction's Post: I've disconnected everything,mounting assembly? I loosened the 3 screws, but then ya can't turn the metal ring to the left. Tighted screws back, tried using the metal wrench to turn the metal ring to the left to loosen, but it is so tight, the metal hooks where ya use the wrench are bending.
