I've had a new bathroom last September. I had a back to wall wc fitted which is all sealed. My problem is that the toilet seat has broken. I can't seem to source the original toilet seat.
But I've located a very close match from b&q. The seat was displayed on back to wall wc and I asked if the seat could be fitted without pulling out the wc. I was advised by the sales girl that she would imagine so. However, the instructions diagram seems to say otherwise.
Are there any seats out there, fixings that would allow to fit a toilet seat on the wc without having to pull the whole wc out????
there is a fixing that you can get that will not require you to remove the toilet. its a soft rubber with a screw and grommet inside. when you tighten the screw from above the rubber expands under the pan to give. problem is i don't think that you can buy them separately, they usually come with the seat.
don't usually recommend bathstore but they definitely have a range of seats with this type of fixing, designed specifically for designer toilets where there is no access at all to the underside. the holes in the pan are usually standard so you should be able to make it work for your pan.
I've fitted new wc pans from Bathstore and they have two holes at the back of the pan. Their fixing method is achieved by pluging these holes with an expanding nylon plug that secures the seat.
Might be worth a try!
