Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
How do I replace dyson belt??
Replacing the belt on the DC-17 is not complicated at all. Once I understood how, the process took about 5 minutes. My best suggestion is to call Dyson and they will quickly and cheerfully walk you through it without making you feel stupid. Here is what they told me: 1. Remove the bottom plate that covers the beater bar, using a flat head screwdriver; pull the beater bar out so that it is only attached by the belt. 2. Use the flat head screwdriver to wedge the belt off the beater bar. It takes a little bit of wiggling, but it is not difficult. 3. Once the belt is free of the beater bar, use the screwdriver to unhook it from the gear that is attached to the motor inside. 4. With the new belt, repeat the steps in reverse, hooking the new belt onto the motor gear, over the beater bar, etc.

On the DC 17 be prepare to spend a bit of time. Remove the floor plate to expose the beater brush. Next comes the fun part. There are four Torx screws that have to be removed from the beater brush motor cover to allow access to the gear that drives the beater brush. Once this is one you have access to the gear drive. Also you can use this process to replace the belt tensioner locate in the same area. The tensioner on my 3 month old vac came out of the bracket. Took me 2 hours to dissemble, repair and re-assemble. Careful when removing the beater brush motor housing- watch how the motor is situated in the housing. Good Luck
