Broken toilet hold-down bolt?
Posted by Andrew S. on December 23, 2002 at 08:32:51:
While futzing with the decorative cap that came
off one of the (old, corroded) hold-down bolts,
it seems part of the bolt came off in my hand.
(At leaat, I'm holding a puttied 1" bolt with a
rusted nut at the top end and looking at an empty
slot where the bowl fixture meets the floor).
What now? Do I have to uninstall the entire
fixture, unscrew the flange from the floor,
insert a new bolt on the underside, and reinstall
the whole thing? This sounds like a /lot/ of
work for a DIY-er to get wrong.
