You have to remove the tank bolts on either side of the flush valve. Once you remove it, there is a tank to bowl seal that will need to be replaced. Remove the old seal and there will be a huge plastic nut that holds the flush valve to the tank. Remember to use new hardware when reassembling the toilet so that it won't leak sooner rather than later!

You might try looking in an hardware store, or a plumbing shop that has been in business for a long time. Sometimes they have parts that can't be found elsewhere. I would take the old seal with you, if you still have it.

There should be a way to tighten the bolts without going that far Here's two things:
Look at the lid, with the seat down. The bolts are sometimes covered with a snap-in palstic cap or flap. If so, pry up with a screwdriver. Then use a screwdriver and wrench to tighten.
If the bolts appear to be cast as a part of the hinge assembly, you should be able to reach around the seat to the back side (no pun intended) of the toilet, and tighten with a wrench.
I sometimes use a 'mirror trick' to get a better idea of what's back there. Just use a small mirror and hold it to where you can see the bolt and not on the back.
Hope this gets you going (oops, another unintentional pun).
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution..thanx!

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.
