Question about Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

DC20 Turbine Head rubber part torn

I admit I was stupid: I was fed-up with how often the turbine head was getting blocked up with small items, due to the presence of a rubber flap with a small **** design to prevent passage of anything larger then an orange pip. This was between the turbine and the brush-bars in the air-flow passage.

I tried to widen the opening, and took off too much rubber. now the turbine does not have enough pressure to work correctly.

I cant find this part listed anywhere, and dont want to spend the near £50 for a whole new head.

Any help on where to find this part would be greatly appreciated. (Yes I know I need Torx screwdrivers and a bit of know-how to get inside the device.)
