It's time to replace the existing toilet in my 1970 Caravel. I have researched the removal of this toilet and all the info indicates that the rear toilet bolt is accessed by a removable plug on top left under toilet seat. This in not the case on the toilet I have. Is the only way to remove that rear bolt by somehow getting my arm and hand back behind the open space at rear of toilet.

See photos attached.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The instructions say remove the plug. He does not have a plug. I don't see why you can't drill a hole in the top to get to the bolt. You are going to throw it away anyhow is that correct?

Drilling a hole is an excellent idea..... and it won't be a small one. I think I'll use the largest holes saw I have. One project in the bag, thanks for the great advise. Now, I just need to get the (4) rusted slotted screws out of the drain valve and I'll be back in business.

I had one of these in my 72 Overlander. They use gremlins to install the damn things cause no human wants to:

A) bend your arm at such an awkward angle
B) get you face that close to the place your forked end rests.

I was getting rid of mine so I loosened the front bold and just pulled the toilet off the floor. That back bolt is not on there very tightly.

Since the potty is coming out, you could use a sawzall to cut an easy access hole to the bolt.
