Removing a top fitting toilet seat

Post by blurb18 » Mon May 28, 2018 3:45 pm

Hi all - having some trouble removing a top fitting toilet seat. Pictures attached, but no brand name on it that I can see. Anyone any idea how to remove it? Cheers.

From the pictures it would appear that you pop off the plastic caps at the end.

Cheers Manc Chippy. Once the caps are off there’s a series of nuts. After the second I stopped ‘cos I thought I was barking up the wrong tree and that it should be easier to take off a toilet seat. Anybody recognize the brand?

Can't say I know the make of loo seat, sometimes there is a hidden button that needs pressing (both hinges) at the back...

Is that a small allen grub screw in the second picture?
if it is undo them and see if the seat pulls up.
