Question about Dyson Vacuums
The square concertina hose running through the middle has splits and lots of little holes in the creases at the edges. Is there a way to replace it?
Hi Vladimir, it's Jack at Dyson.
The DC08 Contact Head is manufactured and supplied to us as a complete assembly, and therefore we don't have the internal hose available to order separately. If the internal hose is damaged, it would be worth replacing the Contact Head to ensure effective pickup performance. You can order genuine spares directly from Dyson by visiting www.dyson.com

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo
4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off
5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.
6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo
9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart
10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.

You have used your Dyson too long without thorough cleaning - Here's how.
Obtain a torx screwdriver, or a set of torx bits, you will need to select the correct size when you come to remove the screws. They are all the same, so you will need only one.
Take the radix catridge off the machine as if to empty the clear plastic sucking container. (From here on your hands get dirty).
Firmly pull out the inner conical funnel. Here it is removed. (Note I am showing photos of the cleaned device).
Next remove the three torx screws. You can see the recesses these are hiding in in the above picture they are the holes without nozzles. The screws are self tappers screwed into plastic, and are easy to undo.
Remove the lower part of the housing and its rubber sealing ring.
Note the orientation for when you put it back together. The above photo shows the lower bell housing opened away from the top part as if opening a door. It's pretty hard to put them together incorrectly so don't worry too much.
You now need to remove two further screws which are recessed into the sides of the inside of the housing. Their positions are easy to find as they are the only recesses large enough, and match up with two curves on the outside of the housing. They are at the left and right in this picture.
Next you need to remove the handle at the top of the radix housing that you normally use to pick up the device.
Remove the two screws deep in the tubular holes you can see at the right of this picture.
Then slightly lift the end of the handle at the end where you removed the screws.
Next use a screw driver to push the other end of the handle off the housing away from the end where you just removed the screws.
This picture shows the handle pushed out (or ready to be re-attached)
Finally remove the screw revealed by removal of the handle.
You can now lift off the top housing revealing the wormy looking cyclone device This is where most of the **** builds up.. Lift this off and clean everything out thoroughly with water.
Make sure everything is clean and dry!!!!
Re-assemble in reverse order.
Now your Dysin is restored to original sucking power.
