One of the hinges on our toilet seat/lid recently broke. I removed the old seat, cleaned the area up and installed the new seat.

My "slow close" lid had failed and became a fast close lid.  Which kinda sucks.  No real way to repair it that I know of so I got a new one.  It's easy to change them out if you have good finger strength to undo the plastic nuts on the underside.
