How do I remove my Thetford Aqua Magic II

I've read that there are two closet bolts holding my Aqua Magic II toilet down. I've found one - in the front near the foot flush pedal - and have removed it.

Where is the other closet bolt and how do I reach it? Do I need to remove the seat and lid somehow? If so, how is this done.

Thanks

My mistake - it's an Aqua Magic not and Aqua Magic II

Oops! It is an Aqua Magic toilet - even older. The Thetford part number is 08435.

Thanks for the PDF link but that's not my toilet. The base on mine is all one piece without the removable shroud in the front.

Looks like there is a bolt in the back. Hopefully one of these is yours. Click on image to make large.

Not sure but if you lift the seat on the left you will see a round flat plug, pull the plug and the bolt is straight down.
On the picture above you can see it on the right side pictures but it has no part #.

You will need a lot of extensions for the socket set to reach the bolt.

Garry was right. There is a round plastic plug at the rim. After removing the plug I determined that I couldn't get a socket over the nut unless I had some kind of ratchet extension with u-joints - which I don't have and don't want to buy.

Eventually, after several skinned knuckles, I was able to remove the nut from the rear by sighting down through the hole and attacking it with a ratcheting box wrench.

Now, after removing and looking the toilet over, I think I'll replace it rather than repair it. I see where there are a couple of threads on this topic so I'll read them first before I ask any more questions.

Thanks to all who helped.

Get a mirror and look at the back rear recessed area.

You may have to work by "feel" rather than by sight.

It can be tough if the bolt/nut is corroded....you will
need a box end wrench for the nut and a small Visegip
for the top of the bolt.

Take it in 10 minute intervals....or you may lose your temper.
