Toilet:

 

To install the new toilet, you'll need a new toilet gasket and two 5/16-inch bolts to mount the bowl to the floor flange, but most of the required parts will be included with the new toilet.

The exposed flange is the mounting base for your new toilet. Discard the old bolts.

First, place the two new, 5/16-inch bolts in the holes located on the sides of the exposed flange, with the bolt heads inside the flange. Position the bolts straight up and across from each other. Then put the new toilet gasket on the flange, with the flat side pointing up, if tapered.

Lower the new bowl straight down, centering it on the wax ring and making sure both bolts come though the holes on each side of the bowl. Apply pressure straight down, pushing the bowl over the ring and flange, squeezing the wax to create a seal and mounting the bowl flush with the floor.
