Hopefully this is a really simple question although I fell embarrassed to ask!! icon_redface.gif

I have a push button toilet (1 button for short flush and 1 for long), but sorry I don't know the make.

I've been trying to work out how to remove the cistern lid but it just doesn't lift off like a usual cistern lid. I've tried pushing both buttons, but no success.

How do I get the lid off please!!!!

I have exactly this same problem. Mine is an ideal standard 2 button cistern and I can't get in either. Tried pushing both buttons but can't see any catches. Don't need to get in now, you understand but would like to know in case I do one day!

On some there is an outer ring around the flush button, unscrew this & you can then take the lid off.

Everyone

Thanks very much for the advice. I pulled out the two buttons, undid the screw and lifted off the cover.

isnt this idea of screwing the lid on stupid! they have a new idea now where the push is secondary to the flush mechanism and the lid just comes off as normal...thank god life is hard enough
