So, I just removed the side brush, took a piece of cellophane tape, cut a very narrow strip with scissors, wrapped that around the axis to effectively make it thicker/wider, popped the brush back on and voila! I suppose you could wrap the tape around the inside of the hole as an alternative but I didn't try that. Anyway, I hope someone finds this helpful.
