As corroded as that is you think there are cross bars left the the dumbell wrench will grab on to? Snowballs chance in hell....
But, When You said "Tenant" everything changed!

I would not touch a thing. It is up to your landlord to make the needed repairs on his building. You could assume some big liabilities by messing with his plumbing and by the condition of what I see replacement of the entire waste & overflow maybe more is likely...
Just pay your rent and tell him he needs to fix it....
Tell him right away when leaks happen!
One of the good things about being a tenant...
