1) This is not normal. You shouldn't expect this to occur each time you use the Neato.

I have about 7 of the various Neato models and have never seen any of them with the gunk you describe on your Neato Brass bush cups.ketola wrote:Has anyone else seen anything similar to what I had on the silicone part that holds the "bearing" of the brush?

anybody open up the brush motor
The brown RPM sensor on the back of the motor was removed by securing the gear and twisting it off the shaft. The electronic wheel sensor was removed using a soldering iron to release the leads one at a time. The back of the casing is crimped in places over the back plate. These crimps were relieved using needle nose pliers. The back plate was removed (this was not simple). The brushes were removed... The motor was reassembled. The backing was reinstalled by gently tapping it into the case with a tap and hammer. I noted that the positioning of the backing in the casing is critical to allow clearance between the rotor and magnets. The backing was aligned by tapping on each side to minimize resistance when turning the gear. The backing was secured by crimping the casing as it was before it was disassembled. The wheel sensor was soldered back into place and the RPM sensor was pressed back on. The motor and wheel housing was assembled.
