This guide explains how to quickly remove the side brush from your Roomba in order to either replace it or to further disassemble the device.


No parts required.

Image 1/1:
  • Place your Roomba upside-down on a hard surface.

If all you need off is the faceplate, skip all of the screwdriver-based steps, and just remove the dirt bin(step 7) and start from step 11 at the rear.
