I would like to help you with your toilet! You said leaking out the right side! Is the water coming out the top or would you say down lower at the floor level?

How comfortable are you working on your toilet? We're the water comes in to the toilet, I would take the side panel off. I would be shocked if you could see exactly were water is coming from. Something inside could just need tightened up? The side panels are made to pop on and off! Let me know if you need anymore help!
