How To Fix A Wobbly Toilet?

What causes a toilet to wobble?

More often than not, the wobble is caused by loose toilet bolts, but the flange may also be responsible.

It may be corroded, broken or set too high.

Moreover, the person who installed the toilet may have used a wax ring that is too thick.
