My Kohler Rialto toilet seat anchor inserts are corroded

Customer Question

My Kohler "Rialto" toilet seat anchor inserts are corroded (no bolt threads) & need to be replaced so I can install a new seat. How do I remove the corroded inserts and replace them for new seat bolts?

Your best bet is to drill out the corroded stud. Use a drill bit slightly larger than the diameter of the stud.
