Looks like a PIA to install. Mostly, because, it looks as though you need to reach in through the access panels to get at the bolts.

Do you have a receptacle beside your toilet? lso, you need to verify where your supply pipe comes in match the spec sheet.
Flange needs to be 12" rough in from rear wall. Most toilets are already.

But, it's doable and we can walk you through it as long as your willing to keep posting back.
(Just a possible note... I have never installed a TOTO, but my neighbor had me over trying to figure out/solve the smell in his lower basement area. We poured castor oil in the floor drain, pulled up some carpet to insure there was not slab/stem wall leakage, checked plumbing connections and he assured me that he had already had a guy out who had RE-installed the seal/flange on the new Toto to be sure that was not the problem.....

Well.. third try was a charm... it turned out to be the seal on the Toto... I was not there, but Bob had him out a third time... so either the guy was not proficient with that install, or it can be tricky.)

Good luck.... (So what do the buttons on the remote control do??????)

Whats great about the sponge is when you miss the bolts and crush the seal, you just pick up and try it again!

I would like to recommend a tube of clear caulk or whatever color you need to seal around the base of the toilet and the floor.
