I am trying to remove a base unit to fit a slimline dishwasher. I have removed most of it but the unit is screwed in from the top down into the back and the only way I could unscrew it is if I removed the worktops, which I can't as they are moulded to the wall!
It is similar to this post (there is a picture if you scroll down that shows what I'm talking about)

The only thing I can think of is trying to knock the sides of the unit really hard to rip it out? I have tried screwing in the feet but it's the two screws at the top that won't let it drop.
Hope that all makes sense to someone!
I'm not sure how to post a picture to show you my unit? The left panel could be ripped out but the right one sits adjacent to the end panel so I can't get between the two to pull it :/ Help!

Most kitchen units are chipboard and can just be ripped out carefully, you can then cut the protruding screws off flush with the worktop. If there is a gap you can slip a hacksaw blade in and cut the screws.
