I have an American Standard Toilet that you can't get to the nuts and bolts when it is installed. You should take a small mirror and see if you can see the nuts and bolts from the back/wall side of the toilet. I hope you can reach them. I had to disconnect the toilet the floor flange to do it because I couldn't fix a tool back there. Which meant I had to replace the wax seal and reinstall the toilet.

There is no way to adjust the hinges themselves, just their position on the bowl relatively to the seat cover. If they are loose then they are damaged. Since they are guaranteed for 10 years this is clearly a manufacturing defect.
To fix that you will have to contact the ones that sold it to you and they will replace it free of charge.

My Villeroy and boch toilet's water level inside the toilet is always low. I was seeing if there was a way to increase the level inside the toilet, not the tank.


V & B toll free number was 877-505-5350. I hane only worked on one in 25 years and they were very helpful. Hope this gets you in the right direction.

One of the softclose buffers on the Subway toilet seat has pulled


Each soft close 'Barrel' is handed - one left - one right. (One is grey - the other white).

Most soft close errors occur because the seat hinges come loose. When this happen, the barrels slightly pull-out of the seat. (There are silver discs on the barrels - These should be tight against the seat).

Once the barrels become loose the first thing that happens is the top cover won't soft close - but the seat still does.

To rectify - puch both barrels tighly into fitting and tighten the hinges. (See below).

To tighen the seat hinges you need to get a flat headed screwdriver underneath the chrome round hinge cover - and 'flick off'. Underneath is a X head screw which id also hexagonal. You can either tighen both by spanner - or screw driver. (sometimes these can be tricky - but it will come off).

If both cover AND seat do not soft close AND the barrel silver discs are firmly located against the seat - the barrel has probably broken.

If so - spare parts can be obtained here:

Villeroy & boch flush mechenism needs to be replaced


This problem is either two things:

1/ The water inlet valve is letting by and going down the overflow pipe. (Connected to the main centre column). You can check this by taking off the lid off.

2/ Centre column seal at the base is letting by. You can unclick the centre column by pushing the two paddles either side.

Then lift out the centre column and check the grey washer at the base. You can turn this washer around and see if this solves - if not the column has probably has a part snap off.

You can get spares here:
