    Photo attached if inside of cistern. Water just keeps running into bowl and won't fill cistern.

    Water inlet seems fine - I think the problem is the seal between the main siphon (?) unit and the lower part of the cistern. If I move the unit slightly (its pretty secure) the leak can be made to stop and the cistern fills. Is there an easy way to repair this?

    I think that your unit is a quick twist and release siphon,so do just that and get a replacemant one with new bottom washer (he he) but from a plumbers merchant on Monday ...take old one with you

    Twist and release, if rubber washer on the bottom is dirty then clean it and the mating surface and refit.
    If washer has bubbles on the surface then many can be reused with the opposite side of the rubber face.
    Total cost £0.00p :cool:

    So I just twist the unit anticlockwise to remove it or is it secured with any clips?

    Look carefully and you will find 3 locating lugs, believe most go clockwise to release.
