    The screw holes on this toilet pan are filled with some hard material that can't easily be chipped out. Either it's covering the screws, which seems very odd, or just plugging the empty holes and the pan is fixed to the floor some other way?

    How am I going to remove this, smash it out?

    It's sat on a "concrete" floor and tiles were butted up to it, they don't go underneath.

    Looks like it's been bedded on cement so hammer and chisel and protect from flying bits.

    Every job seems to come back to that.

    ok, thanks. I won't be doing it for a few days yet, need to make sure I'm ready for the new toilet. But that does depend on the state of the floor underneath, I suppose.

    You can use Jet Cem, a quick drying mortar to prep floor, smooth out, where pan will sit and fit pan with screws.

    Stand in front of the toilet and kick upwards under the bowl, they normally 'pop' off.

  11. If its on concrete, its likely there will be a big blob of sand and cement/concrete underneath which will need removing.

    Cant see the outlet, but if it's an 'S' trap, (goes straight into the floor), be careful you dont lose any bit of broken pan down the drain. If it breaks, (and you'll have to smash it if the outlet is cemented into the drain), wear suitable gloves, broken porcelain is as sharp as broken glass!
