I have a bathroom unit with a terrible draught. Using a mirror looking down inside of the cupboard I can see a large hole where the pipes enter, to get at it I need to remove this plinth/kickboard but it almost feels glued in place. Definitely not like removing a kitchen kickboard held on by the clips. I'm afraid if I force it I could break the plastic rounded corner. Any ideas?

It may not be removable depends how the unit was assembled.
Easy enough to replace if it breaks

Tape over the pipe holes inside to see if it stops.
You might be able to squirt foam into the gap from above.
I haven't tried it but possibly a condom or poly bag shoved down the gap and filled might stop the foam spreading like a Dr WHO monster.

Thanks but I can't get to the offending area without taking off the kickboards
