In response to Re: Securing a squeaky wall mount Toliet carrier
Those bolts just hold the toilet in place. The carrier is bolted to the studs on either side of the carrier and that is where you have to address the squeaking problem. This means you will probably have to open the entire area behind the toilet, and possibly the stud spaces on either side of that also to tighten, or reinforce, the existing bolts.

: To eliminate the squeak from my wall mount toilet, I am considering cutting out the tile wall between the 4 mounting bolts. I should be able to secure the carrier, secure 4 backing nuts to the mounting bolts, and then re-mount my toilet. Will this work? I'm conerned about having the wall removed between the 4 mounting studs, or is this the way a wall mounted toilet and carrier should be installed?

: Any advice would be appreciated.
