SOURCE: can't change the toilet seat that broke

Kohler Rialto Toilet seat replacement.

Use dremel to cut off old bolt and allow it to fall into the black abyss that is the genius of Kohler engineering. Enlarge the hole to 3/8. I worked up to that size slowly increasing bit size so as not to crack porcelin. At Home Depot I bought a 1/4 x 20 x20mm "Insert Nut" and a good 2 part epoxy meant for metal and ceramic. Gently tap the Insert nut about 1/2 way into the hole and apply epoxy all the way around. Continue tapping the insert nut until it is flush. Clean off excess epoxy and allow to set. Now attach any standard round toilet seat using the standard 1/4 nut that comes with it. I used a Kohler "Cachet" round toilet seat to replace the Kohler "French Curve" that comes standard with the Rialto. All in all it should take you about 1/2 hour.

Happy Fixing!

SOURCE: kohler lowboy toilet seat does not have bolts underneath

I have the same low boy where the bolts are inside the hollow body of the toilet. I called Kohler customer service and was told to use brute force to yank the toilet seat out. My husband suggested using a saw to cut the bolt but he hasn't done it yet. He wants to replace all our Kohler low boys which constantly leak becos of poor design of handle and flapper. The handle pulls the flapper slightly to the side when you flush. And the flapper lip being a tiny bit too small, if it doesn't sit just right, the toilet leaks. We've replaced one already with a Toto and love it. Too bad that Kohler isn't trying to fix the problem as I see many many online posts with the same problem and recommendation to replace the Kohler with Toto or somethng else.

SOURCE: can't change the toilet seat that broke

If your problem is like mine your toilet seat is loose and swivels when you sit on it. If you try to tighten down the screw it won't tighten. Use instructions above to remove old hardware.

To fix with new hardware

Purchase Hilti brand 3/16" x 2-1/2" Toggler Brand Toggle Bolt (Home Depot sells the kit). Kit comes with 10. You will only need 2. My last repair lasted about 8 years (with new kit = 40 years left or the purchase of a new toilet - whichever comes first). Set comes with 3/16 flat head screws. I recommend purchasing 3/16" 2" round head screws with matching flat washers. Sink Metal Toggler into hole with toggler pointing straight up (it's attached by long plastic legs). As it goes in the hole it opens up. Pull up on the plastic pull rings as tight as you can until the toggler is tight up against the inner porcelain of the bowl (similar to tightening cable ties). Line the seat up with the holes and it's new plastic adapter (that won't slip into the hole courtesy of Hilti). Slide washer underneath round head screw but on top of toilet seat assembly and screw directly into the newly installed toggler which is sunk in bowl/abyss receptacle. Repair should take around 5 minutes.

SOURCE: What is the best way to remove stuck toilet anchors

try rotating the entire toilet counter clockwise so the bolts are in the insert slot of the toilet flange and rotate the nut and the bolt head should line up and pop free of flange.

You cannot. As you state, it is discontinued, confirmed on Kohler site.
