I have a 1997 Tourmaster and the hot water line broke for the kitchen sink. I can barely see the fitting and am trying to figure out how to replace it. Do I have to remove the sink and cabinet drawers or what? Any help here appreciated.
If you can see both ends of the section you want to replace just snip the ends, tape the replacement line to the bad section, slowly pull it through and use quick connects or Pex crimp rings to reattach the new line...

Is it PEX? If it is PEX you don't necessarily have to go all the way to the other end of the water line. Just find a convenient place to cut the line and use push-to-connect fittings. The push-to-connect fittings are the most secure kind and require no tools, if you don't have the specific tools required to install good clamps.
Some times it is what it is. If you have to go that far to tighten the connection, if it were me I would extend the pipe using, the “Sharkbite” press together fittings. It looks to me as of you will have to keep the screw to get her fittings because the copper line is smaller going to your sink. It may be a great time to ask the person that uses the kitchen what they want for a new faucet (one with a spray wand) that’s what I did! And just ask my wife, she’ll tell you “I just love it”
