You can remove that short length of pipe very easily. Just pull it away from the fitting at the vacuum end and unscrew it from the brush bar end. While you've got it off, check it for splits (which are common) and replace it with a new one if it is damaged.

    How can i dismantle the dyson in order to inspect the motor

    You have to remove just about everything to access the motor. Instead of mew describing it, take a look on Youtube - there's plenty of information there.

    The motors do go wrong and non-genuine replacements are half the cost and work just as well. I got a motor and a set of filters for much less than a "genuine" YDK part.

    How do i fit new carbon brushers to dyson dc14

    It will be a pointless exercise Ron. By the time the brushes on a YDK DC14 motor have gone, so has the armature. You need to replace the motor. You can get a new motor here: Dyson DC14 new motor.
    Also, be sure you change the filters; one of which is washable.

    We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire...

    It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the carbon brushes wear down which is normal. However, the contact wire from the brush to its connector is set so that when the brush wears down, the wire is short enough to stop the spring etc from damaging the commutator. The end result is that you get an intermittent operation of the motor before it finally dies.
    I believe all the DYSONs come with the option of both motors and you cannot really tell which motor you have until you take the thing to bits. You also cannot change motors without changing various other parts on the hoover. On my DC 05 the writing on the YDK motor tells you which one it is.
    This website www. ,select the DC 05 option and scroll down tells you how to take the thing to bits. A search on google etc for your DC 07 may give similar results. Best of luck!
