    • Remove the belt from the motor mount, and then replace with a new belt.

    Do you guys have a guide on replacing the smaller white rolling piece that is part of the motor mount? This is the reason why the brush roller doesn’t spin on my shark cordless vacuum. The piece itself is too small to fit on the motor or maybe the motor’s too big for that piece. I’m seriously getting to the point that I want to just toss this piece in the trash. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well done, Ashley! You might want to note that using a solder remover is helpful.
