    Hi

    I need to fix my toilet. It has started flushing by itself and also a small constant trickle of water is flowing into the pan.

    The toilet is about 4 years old. I managed to get a panel off but don't know how to get greater access to the parts. Have attached pictures and grateful for any advice or even a link to a demonstration would help.

    Ps, I wedged a small piece of wood in and that has stopped the toilet from continually flushing.

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    Can you angle the camera through the gap and take a photo of any of the interior fixings?

    The flush siphon and fill valve may be screw-in anyway. With a bit of manipulation, you may not have to remove the other panel!

    The front panel lifts off, you will need to cut around the silicone on the toilet.

    As above, I forgot to say - I suspect the fittings will look something like:

    All sorted. I would never have worked out the front panel comes off. Thanks everyone, all sorted now.
