Lift bOb up, and two pieces will fall out: the clutch and a spring on top of it. Place your new parts underneath bOb. Hold the spring on top of the clutch piece while putting it back in its space, then reinstall the screw.

Make sure to hold the clutch piece underneath bOb while installing the screw, so you can see the screw post protruding inside bObsweep. When you’re finished, reattach the cover and install the main brush. Follow instructions in the Closing bObsweep's cover after repair
