My faithful Scooba 5900's rubber cover for the bottom "dry vacuum port" (according to service manual) has vanished. (Note that I am not speaking of the "vacuum flow tube.") ...
The item you are concerned about is a single piece that extends through the entire height of the robot's base and protrudes out the bottom a short distance. It looks like this when removed from the base: Yours may have lost the bottom scoop.
(A) Does anyone know of somewhere I can get this part?-
iRobot Customer Support ought to be able to help.
...(B) Will Scooba vac effectiveness be diminished significantly without this part? ...
Just be sure to hand sweep, or Roomba sweep the area to be wet cleaned before running Scooba over it.
