bObsweep standard and pethair have the same bumper attached to their covers. To remove the bumper for repair, uninstall all four screws found around the inside edge of the bumper.   There is one hidden inside the screw hole on the end, Two in the centre, and one on the other end. Remove the bumper springs before lifting the bumper piece up and separating it from Bob.

There will be a wired piece for the wall sensors, then one large exterior cover for the bumper, and a small transparent plastic strip that clips on in the middle. Place the large bumper piece underneath bObsweep’s cover, so the screw posts sit in the four holes around the cover’s front edge.

Lay the wired piece on top, so the screw holes line up with the screw posts. Make sure to line each one up preciseley, before installing all four screws. Replace the two bumper springs on their posts. To Close bObsweep, follow this guide: Closing bObsweep's cover after repair
