I've had this same problem on two separate toilets.

In both cases I used a Dremel rotary tool with one of the cutting wheels.

This worked great both times but be sure to wear
safety goggles as these wheels are prone to flying apart.

: The bolts securing the toilet seat to the bowl are rusted. I cannot turn the bolts with a screw driver. I have tried WD-40. The nuts holding the bolts on the underside of the bowl are thick plastic. I cannot turn them. I have been unable to saw through the plastic bolts.

: I would really like to take off the old toilet seat. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
