SOURCE: Dyson DC17 blockage
You need to "click" off the cone part it fits tight but a little pressure will pull it (no screws holding it) off revealing more screws under. The you should be able make this apart pretty easy. Top tip :- When it's in pieces put the parts in the dish washer to get all the grim off! Don't forget to remove the black gasket it doesn't like water so much :) Good luck

OK. Lost suction almost always means blockage. You need to check all the pipework, the hose and any bits you can remove at the base of the machine - if I remember right, the DC17 has a sort of U shaped bend at the bottom of the handle that you can remove - also turn it over and inspect the clear flexible plastic tube (if it's not blocked, it can get damaged and leak). As for filters, you do of course need regularly to wash the filter that's above the cannister (wash both the blue sponge and the yellow carrier) and be sure they are dried gently for at least 12 hours before putting them back. If you need new filters, any vacuum service shop should be able to supply them. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

Hi its Darran at Dyson.
We would not recommend that you take the cyclone top apart. This part is designed to be a sealed unit and taking it apart may affect ther performance of your machine ongoing.
If you are concerned with the performance of your machine, please follow the blockage procedure and filter washing instructions on our website in the support section at www.dyson.com or check your user guide.
If you do want to clear dust and debris from the cyclone, we recommend that you simply hold the cyclone top over a bin and bang the sides gently to remove any dust from the inside.

I'm not sure about all the switches used in the vacuum, but I recently took some pictures of the power button assembly. The buttons in the picture below are (from left-to-right): Circuit Breaker, Brush Switch, Power Switch
The next picture shows how the plastic buttons that operate the brush and power switches should go together:
And finally, this is how the power button assembly reattaches:
