The rear rubber drag flap on my 5 month old Ego mower just snapped off on one side. The flap is only held by one small screw on either side- a very flimsy design to say the least. Is this covered under warranty, and how would I go about getting it fixed. If I were to do this myself, it looks as though the rear wheels have to be removed in order to get to where the the flap is mounted. How do you remove the wheels.

I know the trailing shield is available as a replacement part. Whether it will be replaced under warranty, I don't know. I haven't read any complaints here of it breaking. Call customer service and they'll fix you up one way or another: 1-855-EGO-5656 (1-855-346-5656) from 8:30AM - 8:00PM EST (Monday - Friday) & 10:00AM - 6:00PM EST (Saturday & Sunday).

Thanks for the help.  It looks like the wheels have to be popped off in order to access the screws to remove the flap and insert the rod. How to you remove those?
