At the bottomor end of the wand there is a curve hose. That is removable. Pull the wand out all the way and turn that curved piece down. It slides out. There is a little channel. It should come right off. I've been there. Let me know if it helps.

The Dyson site has a help section where you can read how to take the unit apart to unblock it. Maybe your solution can be found there.
Hard to tell since you didn't say what the part is.

They go in the slot beside the right wheel. Metal spring first, (the open ends facing away from front of vacuum base. The white nylon piece lays parallel and directly on top of the metal spring, round edge up, and aligned with the open ends of the metal springs.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much.....My son had the vacuum but is now unable to use it & I have it, but had no instructions..Again THANK YOU...Barbara R. Harper "
Sounds like the handle release is broken. Check the lever itself as well as the tab it catches-on (on the side of the pivot). If either is broken only Dyson has the parts. NOTE: Since it is a bagless machine it would be better to put it out on the curb. Any machine with a diposable paper bag system is better than a "dirt cup" bagless system. For an upright vacuum get a used/rebuilt Kirby, Royal or Sanitaire (now made by Electrolux but still has Sanitaire name) from a Vacuum Store, not a big box retail store. You will probably save 50 to 70% off of retail and have a machine that will last you 30 to 40 years, or more.
