Kohler 3434 "Rosario Lite"

I've been noticing that water is leaking into the bowl after it has been flushed and filled (Kohler 3434
Rosario Lite). I went to my local hardware store and picked up a flapper, but the problem still exists.
I fiddled around with the housing that the flapper is attached to and got not better results. I then
checked the troubleshooting section of my Kohler Installation Instructions (came with the toilet).
They list the sympton: "Value turns on/off by itself without being flushed." Considering the other
symptom choices, this one fits best. They suggest that I "inspect, clean, and if necessary, replace
flapper and/or seat." I imagine that housing is what they are calling a seat (even though their
graphic breakdown of the toilet parts calls it a Flush Valve. I guess my question is: How do I clean
this thing (it isn't that dirty) AND more importantly, do I need to replace it to get my toilet to quit
leaking water?
