    I've bought the thetford toilet freshen up pack which includes cassett and the seat and lid.

    How do I remove the old toilet seat/lid? There just seems to be white plastic bolt things but no thread or way I can see of loosening them.

    It's a swivel loo not bench.

    Thank you in anticipation of help.

    I think they are just pins which push outwards from the inside.

    Better method. Tonight, enjoy for dinner an exotic meal of broccoli, cabbage, sprouts, six fried eggs, a quart of 'Na Then' Old Lancashire Recipe Mushy Peas, followed by a fig and date pudding. In the morning, first thing, pop into the MH, clutching your preferred daily paper, your glasses, (if worn), and a 56lb coal weight, complete with rope. Sit as desired, tie the coal weight to your feet, read your paper, and within a very short space of time, your toilet seat will be removed. (y)(y)

    I will risk a sensible answer. I think it just pulls off but might need persuading with something between the lid assembly and the unit.

    The posted instructions seem to be for getting the lid off the seat once it is off the base unit.

    I remember changing ours and it was quite easy to pull off but tight to

    OOPS sorry, I wrote this on my phone sat in COSTA coffee but must not have posted it, just gone when I got on the computer at home.
