Before using the auger, remove all the filters or stoppers. Insert it through the drain opening; keep on moving and pressing it so that it bends according to the piping and moves further. When it stops at the blockage, move it a little backwards. Now push it and turn its handle to bore through the clog. Again push it with a force to clear the blockage through the pipe, or else pull it out through the drain. You can also remove the U-trap by unscrewing it and insert the auger directly through the drain pipe.
Position the sink at the opening of the countertop, in such a way that the countertop will touch the solution used for sealing.
Once you replace the valve seat carefully, make sure you replace all the other damaged parts, namely - washer, valve stem, and possibly the faucet handle as well. Make sure you replace washers of both, hot as well as the cold water supplies, as a precautionary measure.
