one of the screws holding the toilet seat on sheared. But fixing is a nightmare. Its the type of toilet where you cannot access below the fittings with the screws have to drop into the toilet with an expanding rawplug/bung as no access underneath.
First problem the present bungs [rubber with a built in metalic thread for the screws have both perised. Can only get these fittings if i buy a new seat, so thats £65 as it its slightly oval and not a standard round shape.
the new seat arrives exact shape and ident fittings except for the black rubber bungs which have been replaced with a white rawplug these are just a fraction two big to fit in the holes in the toilet pan. The toilet make is a "maestro soft close" anyone advise on anything other than a complete new toilet.
spuds thats where i started visiting the plumbers merchants. Thats how i got the new seat but the bungs have been replaced by rawplugs which are just that fraction too big for the holes, not keen to hammer them in in case the pan splits.
