      • 1. On the bottom left corner: a small connector with red, black and white wires.

      • 2. One thick white wire that attaches on the right side of the previous connector.

      • 3. On the top edge of bOb’s motherboard: a wide multicoloured connector.

    • After opening bObsweep, you will see the main board in the center. To remove it, you will need to unplug 11 more circuit plugs and uninstall 3 screws.

      • There is one in the centre of the motherboard, near the multicoloured plug for Bob’s left wheel.

      • The second is close to the top right corner.

      • The third is near the bottom right edge.

    • Keep all three screws. They will be needed later while installing the replacement main board.

    • Detach all of the motherboard's circuit plugs. Keep note of where each plug attaches for installation of the new one.

    • Lift the main board up and replace it with a new functional one. Make sure the replacement main board lies flat on top of the screw posts inside bObsweep.

    • Re-install the 3 screws you removed in the previous step.

    • All the circuit plugs you removed in the first step must be reconnected in the correct spaces.

      • A small yellow and black circuit plug.

      • The main brush motor's circuit plug which has two pairs of twisted wires, one red and white, the other pink and black.

      • A wider, multicoloured circuit plug which is attached to bObsweep’s left wheel.

    • At the top of the motherboard’s right edge is a wide, red, black, and blue circuit plug.

    • Beneath that is a smaller plug for Bob’s power inlet with orange and black wires.

    • Plug each one into the motherboard in the suitable slot.

    • There are two wide, multicoloured circuit plugs that attach to the top edge of the motherboard. One was removed to detach bObsweep’s cover, so the space will stay empty for now.
