You may have to use a really neat tool and that is aunt splitter. You can get it at O Reilly's auto store or any of those stores. That should remove it.

I tried to unscrew a toilet seat on a lowboy now the screws won't screw or unscrew.


If the screws won't turn either way, they're probably "cross-threaded" or stripped. You'll have to unscrew them with force. I'd use a ratchet and socket on an extension (you might want to use a deep socket, since the bolts often extend an inch or two past the nut).

Once you get them off & can remove the seat, head to the hardware store or Home Depot & pick up a new set of bolts & nuts. They're very inexpensive. When installing them, make sure that the nuts screw onto the bolts with finger pressure alone, before taking a wrench or pliers to them.

If using force to unscrew them ends up damaging the toilet lid/seat assembly (this is the worst-case scenario), then you'll have to spring for a new toilet seat. The up-side of this is that new seat/lid assembly come with the screws and nuts, and - depending on what you want - can cost as little as $15 for an "economy" model, and up to $30-35 or so for a "deluxe" model.

They might be expanding fasteners that only need access from the top. Did you pop off the caps on top and loosen the screws with a screwdriver?

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.

Kohler one-piece lowboy..rialto? leaks from suply below tank


I'm assuming based on your post that the leak is outside the toilet near the inlet to the fill valve. Based on 10 years in the business, there shouldn't be holes in or near this place. Have you tried replacing the fill valve? If you go to the hardware store and look at a new fill valve, you will find that there aren't any holes. They aren't expensive, so I would just replace it.
