Replace shower drain flange from top. Which products before I try to hire someone who has done this? Tx

I have a few pictures of my shower drain which is part of an entire plastic shower enclosure.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1SXbsNlFAsTywUNuLwGft7hpNHRJMcghD?usp=sharing



The metal drain cover came off years ago and I epoxied it on a few times.

where the screws would go in there is nothing to hold them since the plastic sleeve that would be screwed into eventually disintegrated over 20 years.

I wonder what products would be best to replace the flange and the accompanying insert?


I’m not sure if the flange screws inside the drain pipe or if it just is silicone or putty holding it there.

Right now the epoxy is holding, but I want to be proactive for the future.

And I think I would probably hire someone with to chip away the edge of the flange and get the component out in order to install a new one.

And I think the current flange does seem to have been threaded onto the drain pipe, which means there are threads Inside the drain pipe. But I could really be wrong and perhaps there are no threads and this is a two-piece unit. Feel free to zoom in on the pictures. I wish they were better though.

also, not sure about size

Any advice is helpful including the product or products to use
including the product or products to use, gaskets, tools, putty, silicone to remove and install.

Thank you so very much, Peter
