Hi all, my husband has kindly broken all three toilet seats in our house and is rubbish at diy so replacing them is down to me. However I cannot get them off the bloomin toilets!! Can anyone tell me how to come remove these fixings pictured? I cannot get to u set the toilet without it being removed from the wall!

I am guessing spanner? But before I go and buy one small enough I wanted to check. I have a socket wrench but the depth of the sockets aren't enough to get to the bottom and the width of the head wis also wider than the bottom.

Thanks in advance

what type of pan is it ? usually its a thread with a nut/wing nut under the edge of the pan

If its a wall hung pan they are a concealed type and you will find the screw under the silver cover that pops off

there is a third type where the pin screws directly into the pan if it is you need a pair of grips or a small spanner that fits the flats at the base of the pin

They unscrew with a spanner across the flats towards the bottom of the pin.

Spanner will either be a 6mm or an 8mm - try and measure across the flats

I had to re-tighten mine recently.
I turned the wing nut underneath but it didn't seem to do much.
On closer inspection I found that the flat plate around the pin lifts off and reveals a screw head.
2 mins later job done.

I now know this is called a top fix toilet seat even though I can reach the underside of it.
Every day is a school day.
