    Hi all,
    Our main toilet is embedded to the unit and I can't get my hand down underneath the bolts to undo the seat?

    I'm guessing it can be fixed/undone from the top somehow but I can't work out how to do it?

    I wondered if there was a plastic flap covering screws or something but I don't want to push it too much in case I break something.

    It says "Roca DAMA 082161" on the toilet seat.

    Any help/guidance would be very much appreciated.

    Here's some photos of it....

    Curious...do none of those flap type looking things pull down to reveal a fastening..Never seen one you cannot access from underneath or behind.That central part at the bottom definetly looks as if it might drop down to reveal something.Failing that Google or ring Roca.Or wait .......someone on here will know!

    That's great. Thanks for the info. I've found that on Fixthebog now too. I'll be able to work it out from those photos.

    Thanks again for all your help. :)

    *EDIT* for anyone finding this thread with the same issue - I found a diagram showing how to remove the seat. Just lift it up vertically together and then give it a whack from the right hand side as shown here:

    Worked a treat :)
