Fixing a Reece cistern

The item is sold as a complete set by Reece. Item: DURA DUAL FLUSH OUTLET VALVE COMPLETE B4900H (#5202 Button) – see installation instructions.

How to remove lid

This is a good instructional video. The key is to ensure that you remove the two flush buttons carefully, then unscrew the top connector. After that, remove the lid. The remaining joint is installed with a separate piece that has to be retained at the same height as before, after fittings are replaced.  This is a matter of trial and error. Fingers can be used to press on the side to allow the joint to slip in and out of the holes.
