I just opened mine tonight after finally finding a picture of where the front tabs are!
On the back you will see slots with arrows, take a flathead and push it in the slot and push downward on the screwdriver.
Then pull the paper tray out and look here for the tabs on the front.
I wouldn't recommend dismantling farther than this as this is pretty delicate stuff.
But you can clean your waste pads out where the head parks and make sure they are firmly in position. You can also do a general cleaning I suppose.
Big thanks to RossfroMoz for posting a link to these pics which really really helped.

I wrote this guide originally for dismantling the Sebo K1, but I believe that with respect to the cable-rewind, the K3 is pretty much identical. So here goes:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!)
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!
I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.

Part of your question has been cut off by the FixYa system, but I guess you say the wires are exposed where the flex enters the handle. To dismantle the handle, first remove the handle from the machine and, of course, be sure the flex is not plugged in to the mains power.
Look on the back of the handle - you will see a small screw. Undo that screw and remove it, then you will be able to pull the plastic part of the handle out from the metal part. NOTE: it does not come very far out - just far enough so you can separate the two halves of the plastic part. When you've done that, it's only a matter of removing the damaged part of the flex (noting how the wires are routed inside the handle), stripping the remaining flex to match the bit you've removed, and wiring it in. Fit the two plastic halves together again (one hooks into the other at the top), push them down into the metal part and refit the screw. Job done!
If you need more help, just post a reply here and I'll get back to you soon. Good luck!
