At the bottom of the bag, there is a zip tie around the plastic part that turns & snaps on to the exhaust hole of the vac. also take a flat screwdriver & pull up the rubber under the zip tie...all the way around, like u would take a bike tire off a rim . then pull the bag holder/tube thru the bottom, then vise versa, when u put it back on.

    male or female part? if it's the male latch attached to the outside bag.....up in the rubber jacket...there are 2 screws with a snap washer attached to the bottom of the screw, if u can pry or spin that washer off the screw, then the bag will come free.



    if it's the female part....the u just spin the cord holder until it comes out, then pull off the whole handle with the female latch attached & replace it.

Kirby generation 3 won't vacuum. It runs and


You may have suction but if the belt is worn the roller brush won't spin and therefore won't pick up anything. You can get a replacement belt here:

My button for the neutral and drive won't work. a metal piece broke off and no i can't switch the transmission


Find an authorized Kirby Dealer in your area and have the part professionally installed. Very complex. Many parts and screws. If no Kirby store, find a Vac store you trust. Or go here http://reviews.ebay.com/REPLACING-OR-REPAIRING-KIRBY-VACUUM-NEUTRAL-DRIVE-PEDAL_W0QQugidZ10000000011180003

Replace release button on kirby 3


I assume you are talking about the release on the handle pivot. Unhook the bag so it is out of the way, take the hanle off, take the top cover off, then there 2 screws holding the handle oivot asm, take them out, replace witht he new one, making sure that the the piece that hangs down meshes with the transmission. Then reasmble.
