    Default Toilet seat I've not seen before

    Hello

    I've just moved house and the toilet seat that's fitted is starting to break up. The access to the underside of the pan is hidden so I'm not sure how to fit another seat without dismantling the surrounding panels. There is however a central green button which when pressed allows the seat and cover to be removed. The chrome bracket on the toilet pan is a one piece item with 2 spigots spaced about 4" apart. As there doesn't seem to be any name or identifying marks on the seat I can't find one online to fit at present.

    My question is "has anyone come across this type of toilet seat and would they be able to put a name to it?"

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    The access to the underside of the toilet pan is concealed and it would mean dismantling the surrounding covers including removing the flush button controls.

    I had hoped to just source a similar seat and put it onto the existing base.

    Most concealed fixings are accessible from above

    Not sure how old it is as I have only just moved in.

    Is there any clue as to how to check if this is accessible from above?

    Agreed, it may be a seat specific to a model of pan.
