comment How to open the lid of this toilet water tank?
Thanks. ❶ I tried turning the outer ring while pressing it hard down, too: after a half turn it stopped and further force would risk breaking it. ❷ I double checked and there is no screw accessible after removing the buttons (Picture 1) ❸ I carefully slid the lid forward as far as I could and squeezed my fingers in. I could reach the plastic cylinder in the middle, but found nothing to push or pull.

@WayfaringStranger: Thanks for this, too. The two plastic bits are pushed down when the flush knob or the stop-flush knob are depressed. I pushed them down in the same time, and tried moving the lid, tried turning the ring, but there was nothing freed up.

comment How to open the lid of this toilet water tank?
@WayfaringStranger: Thanks for the idea (+1). With the force I believed I could use without breaking the inside I was able lift the lid a centimeter and slide it aside two centimetres. It moves around, but the plastic structure under the buttons keeps the lid near its central position.

@BMitch: Thanks for the idea (+1), but it does not turn. At least does not turn with a force that would risk breaking the plastic components.
