Need new toilet top

Ok, i will try to describe this as best as a i can. i have broken the top of the toilet, the bit where u flush it (have no idea what it is called!).
The toilet was constantly flushing by itself, so i lifted the top off the cistern (?) fiddled around with the lever inside and managed to fix it. However, in the meantime, i dropped the lid and it crashed to the floor and broke into pieces It is a plastic lid, not a porcelain one, with the flusher incorporated into the lid.

Now i have been to numerous places to find a replacement but everywere is telling me i must buy the whole cistern. I just need a new lid! i don't want to ask a plumber and get charged an astronomical price for something that i can easily put back on top of the cistern myself. Carefully, unlike last time!

Re: Need new toilet top

Do u know the make of the lid? maybe you can go to the manufacturer itself and order it! sometimes that works going directly. take a picture of the broken lid as well. send it to me, maybe i can tell you where to go. but i can't give you 100% that I'll know, but do my best.

cheers Erik
