Toilet plumbing issue
 
Installing new floor around toilet, problem of old plastic flange glued into drain pipe. Help!!

Cut the piece to size then cut it in half right where the middle of the flange is so you can install one side at a time, may have to add some blocking where the cut is.

An even better way is to go under the floor and cut the PVC pipe. Install the floor then use a hubless connector to reconnect the pipe.

OP, is your problem:

1. with a cracked/deformed flange? or

2. with your toilet flange that will be lower than your new floor?

The old flange had a metal ring around it that rusted and broke off leaving the plastic part still glued into the drain pipe.

Then you going to have to cut the pipe slide out the flange and tail piece and replace.
