Replace the drum blade by removing drum unit and sliding out-cam developer unit with black lever on rh side of copier. remove toner waste bottle first.

drum blade comes out after popping off upper plastic cover, on front of drum unit move spring to right and take off spring which exerts tension on the blade!

BEFORE removing blade remove the drum carefully{dont scratch} with screw on front of ***'y turn t-post 1/4 turn and pull out.

blade comes up and out after pulling front side plastic retainer/tension piece out.

vacuum unit with hepa filter vacuum replace blade with new one & re-assemble-if you can locate starting powder I always powder the drum on new blade installs.This will reduce streaks in the future.
you should be able to get starting powder from precision

Need any more help just holler!

Why in the world are you replaceing the brush? In 25 years of copiers, i,ve never had to replce a brush. If its streaking on the copy, its the blade thats bad. only reason to replace a brush is if its broke,cause of a clog. just vacumm it out.

Black line on copies

Check the drum history? If the yield is not yet reached, you should clean the charge roller, cleaning blade brush and cleaning blade. Remember to vacuum beneath the cleaning blade! See if that works, otherwise you should call a techie to replace the drum. If yield is not reached they will charge you for a new drum.

Try removing the brush stroke with a soft cloth, you may need to use a bit of methylated spirts on the cloth.
If none of this works then replace the toner drum.

Corona wire needs cleaning and i've done this several times

The only other thing to do is to actually disassemble the drum unit, and "clean" it as a whole. If you are not a service tech, as I, then it's a sketchy thing to do, as it involves "re-dusting" the cleaning blade.
barring that... you may just have to simply replace the drum unit to correct the error.

Need to replace the drum cleaning brush how do I get it out????

The drum cleaning blade removal is pretty straight forward.
1. Remove the charge unit above the drum.
2. Remove the cover that sits above the cleaning blade.
3. Release the pressure spring at front of drum unit.
4. Remove 1 screw (front side of blade at top) holding blade in place.

I noticed that you had also had a E3-40 code previously. If toner is dropping on to your copies, the toner support blade will also have to be replaced.
