Flip Bob over and remove the 7 screws around which hold the cover together. Remove the main brush. Unscrew the holder, and lift the brush out.

Use a phillips head screwdriver to reinstall the six or seven screws you removed at the start of the repair, so the cover is sealed together. There are 5 along the edges of  bObsweep's underside. Plus one or two more in the screw holes inside the brush compartment.

Remember to reinstall the main brush before setting bObsweep to clean again. Attach the end piece first. Put the square end in the square space inside bObsweep, then lower the brush in place.

Good job. I had to backtrack once or twice, but had bOb apart and back together quite easily and he seems to be working again (No NR 04 message).

A couple of suggestions. On reassemble, unless I missed it, you missed telling people to reattach the power jack cord in the slot on the side of the unit.

Also, I found 1 screw in the well under the brush. There was a second screw hole, but it was empty

Finally, a helpful tip. When you loosen the 6/7 recessed screws on the bottom, if you put a small piece of tape over the holes, the screws won't fall out or get lost.

And for the manufacturer, While most of the screws are common, a couple are not. The more screws that are common, the cheaper to make the unit and if repair or deep cleaning is required, the owner doesn't have to remember which length screw goes where.

Thanks
