Had these seats fitted quite a few years ago, but they are starting to show a yellow discolouration, which has nothing to do with anybody 'missing the seat'! lol

Any ideas how to remove them, in laymans terms would be greatly appreciated.
If I'm going somewhere to get replacements, is there a specific name of the kind that they are so I get the right replacements as well?

thanks

There should be a clip or button to release panel where there will be 2 bolts or screws you can but a new d type seat from most hardware store like toolstation, wickes, bandq, screwfix as such, they normally come with new fixing screws and plugs.

Place seat down and see if trim in between hinges lifts up

As you can see photobucket no longer allows 3rd party hosting of images.

At a guess there will be am allen key or grub screw (x2) hidden behind the seat when closed. It'll also be a "top fitting"

Actual pics will help use a mirror if the camera won't focus that close.

So, may I ask...... was the pan already installed, as shown, and the seat therefore installed from above? Or was it fitted at the same time as the pan - in which case the fixings might be from underneath!

That may be possible although all the ones I have replaced are from on top.
