Mine broke after six weeks, they sent the door as my machine is under warranty, no instructions for replacing the thing.

After two months, the latch cracked on the 960 dust filter door. Given the 12 month warranty period, they are sending me a new replacement part. Hope it lasts much longer. Apparently a new door costs in the order of $25.

I know I’m responding to somewhat of an aged post but I just experienced the same issue and received a free replacement door from iRobot. I remove the four screws from the top of the bin which holds down the cover which the filter door is attached to. There are is a scissors type spring attachment that attaches to the cover, the two posts holding this one can simply push through giving you easy access to the underside to add pressure to the cover arms for removal. Assemble the bin cover in reverse order.

The even simpler way without removing the bin cover is to simply break the arms off from the red filter door letting them fall through in to the dust bin then attach the red door by pushing the new door arms through the slots.
