My bathroom leaks toilet bottom Im thinking it could be wax ring but dont know exactly how to disassemble? Can you help?
Assuming you're strong enough to lift an assembled toilet, it's rather easy. turn off the water, hopefully there's a shut off valve right at the toilet, then unscrew the line that goes into the toilet. Once that's done, there should be one bolt on each side of toilet (often covered with a plastic or porcelain cover) Unscrew the nuts on these two bolts, then lift the toilet off. This is best done with the tank empty so once the water is of flush and hold the flush handle down to get rid of as much water as possible before you start on the bolts. Remove the old wax ring and replace it, then do the steps in reverse. Not a hard job usually. However, you might run into problems of the wood being rotted and the bolts turn when you try to take off the nuts. That's a bigger problem but there are solutions. That would take much longer to explain.
