The following steps are necessary whenever changing from one
ball size to the other. First, remove all balls from the Bucket
(540 or 1040) or Trays (2040) and place them in a box where
they will not get mixed in with balls of the other size. Then
disconnect the Connector Cable from the back of the robot.

Bucket or Center Through.
Remove Clear Front Cover.
Place the robot body on your table. Pull the Clear Front Cover
off by squeezing on the circular fingerholds on the sides of
the cover with your thumb and forefinger, and then pulling up
while squeezing. Pull the cover loose first at the top and then
at the bottom.

with the other balls of the same size. Also gather up any balls
that are on the floor or lying around loose in the playing area
and place them inside the box too.

in with the 40mm balls, the 38mm ball will be ejected with very
little forward speed.
