Kohler Rialto toilet seat replacement...I have had the same issue, saw your post but am not quite sure how you drilled out the holes. The metal inserts for the screws are still in place and held by washers that I cannot access...but they are just loose enough to not allow for me to tighten the seat down, not all the way off. How do I take out the metal inserts and put new ones in? Do I drill through the metal?

The Rialto toilet makes it very difficult to replace the seat as you cannot access the wing nuts which in a moment of engineering genius you put inside the bowl I have already purchased a French seat to...


You should be able to remove the tank lid, reach into the cistern and find submerged at the bottom towards the front of the toilet the plastic wing nuts, hold onto these while tightening the plastic bolt from the top.

I have a Kohler toilet with a similar design, not sure if it is this exact model but they look very similar so I hope this works for you.

How do we replace the seat on a Kohler K-3386-0 Rialto one piece toilet? The screws/nuts holding the seat down are inside the toilet and aren't accessible. Is there a way to replace the seat without...


Kohler will try to sell you $46 anchor bolt kit 84999 & also there special tool. You should expect that for a $400 toilet.

Try this instead:
1. Use 1/8" drill bit and drill and drill around the bolt until the anchor material can be removed.
2. Carefully clean hole with 11/32 drill to remove all remaining acchor material.
3. Go local hardware store & buy a 10 - 32 3/8"X3/4" rubber expansion plug (make certain threaded part is brass & has shoulder on 1 end), a 10 - 32X1.5" Phillips bolt and couple of small fender washers fit the seat.(about $4 for 2)
4. Assemble carefully not to over tighten and crack the porcelain.

Hope it helps

Is it easy to enlarge the holes on a koeler toilet


Enlargeing the holes will not turn out well.

I can't unscrew the bolts on my Kohler 3386 rialto toilet to replace the toilet seat.


There is clips where the bolts should be .Flip the clips up grab hold of the seat and pull it strait out towards the front of the toilet.

Can't change the toilet seat that broke on kohler rialto


If your problem is like mine your toilet seat is loose and swivels when you sit on it. If you try to tighten down the screw it won't tighten. Use instructions above to remove old hardware.

To fix with new hardware

Purchase Hilti brand 3/16" x 2-1/2" Toggler Brand Toggle Bolt (Home Depot sells the kit). Kit comes with 10. You will only need 2. My last repair lasted about 8 years (with new kit = 40 years left or the purchase of a new toilet - whichever comes first). Set comes with 3/16 flat head screws. I recommend purchasing 3/16" 2" round head screws with matching flat washers. Sink Metal Toggler into hole with toggler pointing straight up (it's attached by long plastic legs). As it goes in the hole it opens up. Pull up on the plastic pull rings as tight as you can until the toggler is tight up against the inner porcelain of the bowl (similar to tightening cable ties). Line the seat up with the holes and it's new plastic adapter (that won't slip into the hole courtesy of Hilti). Slide washer underneath round head screw but on top of toilet seat assembly and screw directly into the newly installed toggler which is sunk in bowl/abyss receptacle. Repair should take around 5 minutes.
