The Poolvergnuegen pool cleaner has adjustable skirts that allow the cleaner to maintain optimal suction under the machine even when it encounters obstacles. When the cleaner encounters an obstacle one (or more) of the skirts will lift up over the obstacle while maintaining suction under the cleaner.  Over the course of time, the skirts may become damaged and the cleaner may move slowly or not move at all. This guide will show you how to fix replace the front and rear skirt.

Wow. It really was hard to remove these skirt sections from the body. I actually did break break the "old" body when I was doing it. When I tried to replace the skirt sections into the "new" body I couldn't do it just by pushing them into the channel. Instead I repeatedly "shaved" small slivers of plastic from the channel until I was able to snap the skirt into place. I didn't break the body and the new skirt is staying in place. Good Luck.
