The water valve for my Aquamagic IV tiolet is leaking and needs to be replaced. Ive removed the two screws up into the toilet. Of course I can't see anything up in there and don't know where to go next. I haven't been able to find a good set of instructions online. Where can I find some or can some one tell me what to do from here. I've had them replaced before at shops and I know its not a big deal. the shop I have used is gone and I don't want to have to teavel several miles to find another one. Any help appreciated. Thanks Bill

The instructions that come with the replacement valve tell you to remove the toilet and turn it upside down. Fortunately, the toilet I was working on was far enough from the wall and I found that by using a small mirror to help me see, it was not necessary to remove the toilet.

After you remove the 2 screws from the valve, there is nothing else holding the valve in except the O-ring and the linkage on top. You need to take off the cover at the back of the toilet under the seat. The screws are underneath near where the screws were for the valve itself. I think there are 3 or 4 for the cover. Use a small mirror to see where they are.

After you get the cover off the top, make sure you look closely at how the linkage is attached to the valve so you know how to put it back. Take a photo or 2 if you have a digital camera or make a sketch. Then just wiggle the valve with one hand while you pull straight down and it should come out. As it comes loose, work the metal linkage out of the arm on the valve from the top side with your other hand.
