    The flapper is worn and needs o be replaced. Can I just replace the black rubber or does the whole flapper kit need to be replaced?

    You should be able to replace disc only. You don't have a habit of using the handy cleaners that drop into the tank, do you?, some of them will deteriorate the mechanism

    You can just replace the disc, UNLESS, you break its retaining "pin" off when you remove the old disc.

    Be careful when removing it as HJ said if you break the pin you have to replace the whole thing. The problem is that your model takes a different size than the regular AS part. I had to have one ordered in from AS last year and it took a few weeks.
