Re: Nut on the end of skerer was rusted on. Had to
You can buy replacement skewers at your local bike shop or bikepartsexpress.com. You might try spraying some penetrating oil (like Liquid Wrench) on the nut and then turning the bike on it's side for awhile to let the liquid penetrate the threads. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid your choices are 1. a big wrench, 2. a dremel tool or as you have already used 3. the hacksaw. When you do get new skewers be sure and unscrew the nut and put some light oil on the threads every few months.

Hi Anonymous, take a stiff piece of wire slide it through the fender hole then slide the new seat nut on the wire at the bottom. Using needle nose pliers bend the bottom end into a curly Q and pull the new seat nut up to the fender hole and attach c-clip. Good luck
Removing toilet seat hardware can be a problem, especially as it is prone to corrosion - but it can be done. You can attach a pair of gripping pliers to the nut, apply thread lubricant, and unscrew the bolt from the top OR you can use one of those blade-and-handle hacksaws to cut off the nut OR you can use that little hacksaw to cut off enough excess bolt length to allow a socket to engage the nut and allow the bolt to be removed from the top.
Get in there with a hacksaw blade, and if it is a tight fit, use just the blade, no saw, hack that baby off there, hang on to it with pliers, and when you get the toilet off, you can remove the rest of the bolt. Get some new johnnie bolts with the wax ring, you should be all set.
Quick and easy... Get a saws all and slice that ****** open, get a new latch and whatnot from the junkyard. Don't have a saws all? Get a hacksaw blade raps on paper towels and duct tape around it for a handle and go at it. That duct tape may come in handy until you can get a latch too!
Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.
Sounds like the bolt is rusted on. Try a few things.
Heat the bolt and nut with a propane torch. Tap the nut with a hammer or punch as it cools. Try it now.
Take a hacksaw and make a diagonal cut across a face of the nut. Be careful not to get into the threads too much. Cutting the nut will relieve the pressure on the bolt. You may need to cut a second face of the nut also.
Let us know how things turn out.

What sort of disc do you have on there at the mo? If its just an abrasive disc the easiest way to remove it is to use a hacksaw to cut the disc sideways so that you are actually sawing it out between the lock nut and rear flange. This will release the pressure on the nut. If it is a diamond blade and you have already snapped a pin spanner then I would suggest securing the blade in a vice and using a set of stiltsons/pipe wrench. While in the vice you could also try using a punch in the pin holes to shock it round a bit, then the pin spanner (and leverage if needed).
