I couldn’t get the wheel cover to come off. :-( Fortunately, my wheel wasn’t broken, I’d just been hoping to clean the axels. I put it all back together, and just cleaned the axels next to the wheels as best I could.

I couldn’t get the wheel cover off my Braava 380 and so I got stuck here. :-( Fortunately I didn’t have a broken wheel - I just wanted to get at the axels to clean them. So I put it all back together and pulled out the hair and dirt stuck in there with the wheel on.
