Question about Home
Generic procedure for these are :-
1. Remove the old toilet seat and any mounting hardware connected to it. Throw the old seat away as well as any old hardware. You don't want to mix up the new with the old.
2 Using a soft scrub cleanser that will not scratch the porcelain, clean the toilet surface where the old seat was attached. Don't forget to clean the bottom surface where the old hardware was attached.
3 Lift the hinge covers on the new seat before placing it on the toilet. Align the new seat to the mounting holes and insert the two bolts.
4 Thread a nut onto each bolt, making sure that the new seat is in the proper position before tightening.
5 Using the wrench and screwdriver, tighten the nuts making sure not to over-tighten them. Once the hinge covers are closed, the job is complete.
Kohler toilet seats are held on by plastic screws. If you cant get the nut on the bottom to come off then use a sharp chisel and just chop the head of the screw off.
Oh yea the screw head is located under a cap. Stick a screw driver under it and pry up and it will open.
How i done it on similar model - To replace seat. look right at where the lid hinges there is like two block about 6 to 8" apart. take a small screw driver and pop free the little door covering the screw head. take a big Philips or straight head screw driver. and then look under neath where bolt would stick out below. and you will see a nut,you should be able to hold nut by hand as you tighten the bolt. both nut and bolt are plastic. draw good and snug.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
