Default one piece toilet

Ok. I have read all the other seal and flapper problems. I know that
the seal is problem. How do i get the assembly out to replace the
seal. I believe that what I have is a Kohler, it has a Karat stampet
on the rim. So, the problem I have is the removal of the aseembly to
get the seal off. Please, any ideas are helpful. Thanks.

No it is not.
If you are looking at the hole from the top, there are four nubs at
the bottom rim. I believe these nubs are for the screwing and
unscrewing of this assemby. The problem is that I cant or dont know
how to get to these nubs. I have tried using just my hands but I am
afraid that if I do it too hard I will break the assmbly. I purchased
the adjustable wrench that looks like a pitch fork. The fork is not
long enough to get the nubs. Thanks again.

Look up your toilet here. This place has everything including sketches
and diagrams.

Then post a link of which toilet you have.
