first of all take off front assembly. turn over front assembly and then undo clips on the bottom, then turn top knob on front of assembly which hold up the belt, and it will come free then you need to pop out either side of the brushes to take off old belt and re-install new and then turn know to uptake the belt and replace back on the main vacuum body.
HOWEVER this did not resolve the issue. I realized the beater bar was not spinning or was slipping. I thought I cleaned it all out but realized you need to take the beater bar out and pop the end cap and clean out the INSIDE of the beater bar (tons of lint and cat hair). I additionally sprayed WD40 in there.
It spins great now and in the end I think that's all I had to do was clean out the cat hair build up inside the beater bar. But now I have a new clutch & belts too. Hopefully won't have issues anytime soon.
Place the belt on the motor shaft then slide the beater bar into the belt. Center the belt where it should be on the bar, then insert the bar into the end sockets. It'll be tight. Replace the base blate. Done!
If the DC14 has a brush protected aspect i.e. a switch on the front that puts the drive belt off, the drive belt would have to be replaced by a professional repairer as this can't be done at home.
If the model doesn't have the brush control at the front, flip the Dyson over so that the beater bar is in the air and locate three/four screws that can be taken out with a coin or blunt knife. A turn is all that is required on those notches and the sole plate should come off once these notches have been undone. Then check the belt - if it has broken lift out the beater bar in the middle with your hand and replace the sections necessary. Be careful to check that the end caps are pushed in properly otherwise the beater bar will not sit correctly.
Hi! I'm not so familiar with this model, but I believe the V-belt is only under tension when the brush roll control is in the "HARD" or "OFF" position. I'm not sure what the exact mechanism is, but I suspect that moving the control to the "ON" position is what places the belt under the correct tension and thus drives the roller. Please let me know if I'm right!
As for your other point, not sure what you mean by the "hood assembly cover" or why you might want to take it off. If you can clarify, I'll help if I can.
on the wheel assembly you will see on each end the studs with the flat ends on them,slide the studs in the slots and fold wheels forward and push in.in the middle at the front of the wheels you will see a flat catch ,push it up into the base right behind the brush roller and it will snap in
