    I've bought a replacement flush valve for (Geberit 282.350.KD.1 Flush Valve) as the last one fell to pieces, it works perfectly but the top down button is about 2 inches too short to sit in the hole on the cistern lid.

    Is there an easy way to get it to sit higher?

    You can reach it if you have long enough fingers but it's only a short term solution! Any help appreciated, cheers, Tim

    They stopped making the exact same part in 2007 but the Gerebit support line person said this would work fine...

    Then it should raise to the same level as the old one.
