Remove the plate on the bottom front of the vacuum by turning the plastic knobs on the plate with a nickel or screwdriver. Then pull out the brush bar and slide the belt over the brush bar and align it with the "cogged" portion of the brush bar. 
Slide the belt and brush bar up into the vacuum and over the small cog on the motor. You'll need to pull back the idler pulley which is the smooth metal cylinder next to the cog on the motor. Once everything is lined up push the brush bar into its slots and reinstall the bottom plastic plate onto the vacuum. Everything should be in good working order now!

Machine is making loud sound, not normally heard. Looking for a local service provider.


You might be able to save yourself some money and do it yourself. When it makes loud noises like that it usually indicates that there is an issue with the brush roll and/or belt. Try cleaning out the roller brush and replace the belt. You can get a replacement belt here:

Roller bar belt broke on my dc17 animal. how do i


This belt isn't available at your normal retail stores like Walmart or Home Depot. You can try your local vacuum repair shop, but not all vacuum shops carry Dyson parts. The best bet is online. You can get this belt here at this link and shipping is only $1.99. That might be worth it rather than driving all over trying to find that belt.
