    Hi
    I have a 2 button control on my cistern which is wirquin i believe.
    I need to take the cistern lid off completely to fix the float valve but it is attached to the cable
    how can i disconnect the 2 button control so that the lid can come off.
    Cannot see any clip to press to disconnect it, thought about pulling it off but do not want to break it ?
    Thanks.

    I can lift the cistern lid off but it is still connected to a cable, how do you remove it from the flush button seems to be clicked \pressed on but does not disconnect ?

    Hi,
    Have tried to remove my cistern lid but it is still attached to the wirquin 2 button shown in photo via a cable tube. How do I get the cable off the button assembly please so I can work on toilet and have hands free. It looks like it pushed on but when i pull it, it does not come off ?

    Thanks.

    Is there not a release tab you push in then pull the connector off.

    OR a tab you pull out to release and push in to lock it.

    The installation instructions/manual (if you can find them) may offer a clue.
