There are two screws just to the rear of the accessory compartment. There are also two hidden screws under the cord retractor lever. I tried to get the retractor off by pulling upward on it, but it just wouldn't come. It is not screwed down but held by friction via its hinges. The way I got at the last two screws was by drilling a couple of holes thru the plastic cord retractor lever - about 1" from the end of the lever on left side (looking from the rear of vac) and about 0.5" from the other end of lever.

4 possible reasons.
1 – one or both bearings are worn so armature (rotating part) wobbles as it is spinning and cause motor brushes to wear fast. Solution – change bearings too.
2 – Whoever replaced brushes – did not use some brush seating sticks to make cmutator smother and contour brushes to the shape of the comutator (not likely). Solution – appropriately install new set of brushes.
3 – Comutator is so warped that seating sticks do not help anymore – solution – new armature or turn the old armature.
4 – The fact that ONLY ONE brush was worn may mean that there is something wrong with the brush or housing. Maybe it could not move freely within the housing? I think this may be most likely cause it it may be a combination of all 4.Is it worth to fix? Hmm depends how much will it be. If this is 100+ - I’d say get newer Kirby for 300 ad enjoy the tech drive (Heritage does not have tech drive so it is much harder to vacuum with than the newer models)

Looks like a Beam central vacuum www.beamvac.com, and a Kenmore vacuum head.
Reply what problems you are experiencing and I will try to help.

The entire brush and holder assembly has to be purchased/replaced. That's the plastic piece that screws on to the motor. I don't think you can even get brushes for their machines anymore.
Remove screws. Remove plastic piece from motor. Replace.
