if you are talking about the wax ring you remove the floor mounting bolts and replace the wax ring under it. first you want to shut water off then flush to empty tank and with a wet dry vac remove any water left . now you can remove it without any mess.

Try replacing the flapper, they are cheap and so long as the tank and or bowl are not cracked you can replace all of the internal parts and basically have a brand new toilet much cheaper then replacing the entire unit. Go down to your local hardware store and everything you need is in one simple kit with very simple instructions. Good Luck.

A few things to check look in the tank make sure nothing is blocking the flapper at the bottom thats the thing that lets the water drain into the bowl if it is clear check make sure the chain or line that connects the flush handle to the flapper is not kinked causing it to hold the flap up enough to let the water drain. If these are ok sometimes sediments will make the float device, whether its a ball or a canister type to stick reach in and lift the floater if the water stops then adjust the floater some have a screw on the canisters to adjust some an arm some the whole mechanism shaft screws up and down to adjust if its the ball hold the metal arm firm next to the base and bend it slightly down on the other end so the ball goes further into the water so when you release it lifts it up better don't bend to much check and bend more if you need to. If its a ball make sure water is not getting into it by feeling if so replace it. If none of these work you can replace the whole thing for around $20 just turn the water off flush the tank get all the excess water out and go to town its not hard make sure you have pipe tape and if you don't know about the tape ask the hardware dealer to explain how it goes on just a couple wraps. The hardware store can help you pick the one you need tell them what yours looks like and they can help find a replacement.

I have three of these beautiful babies from when I redid my bathrooms back in the early 2000s -- and one of them started to leak (would keep flowing a small amount into the bowl after filling the tank), so I did some online sleuthing and came across the parts as well as the how-to for a complete rebuild of the critical parts -- and rebuilt all three and they work like new. I am in zip code 94552 so if you need help from a licensed general contractor -- give me a call at 510-909-8813 and I can see if I can fix it for you (for a charge, of course).
