SOURCE: screw rusted; cannot remove
nut, is attached to the motor ( armature) the plastic housing is a cheap replacement but the nut that is attached to the motor is not, crack the plastic housing (looks kinda grayish right) AND ATTACH A VICE TO ONE AND A NEEDLE VICE TO THE LOWER THIS SHOULD WORK,,,,,DO NOT STRIP ANYTHING DONT WORRY ABOUT THE BOLT IT IS A CHEAP REPLACEMENT TO

With the head flipped upside down, take a flat tipped screw driver and carefully pry up the rollers on the front the head. Underneath, you'll find a screw. Remove the screw under each roller, and the front cover will come off with ease. The rollers are just friction fit.

The aforementioned solutions probably never even attempted this fix on this model. The handle does NOT need to come off. but the 5 screws on the front housing DO: 2 above the light and 3 below it. Then to get the colored housing off you need to access 2 screws on the underside that are beneath the agitator roller. To do that, obviously the 4 screws holding the bottom plate need to come off too. Here's a link to a schematic that might help as you attempt to do this, (assuming that you still do!) http://www.elkypro.com/hoops2005/vacuum_parts/hoover/U5461-900.html
Once you have the main body housing cover off, then you can access the 2 screws atop of each trunnion cover that holds the motor assembly cover halves together. If you've made it this far, then gently pry apart the motor halves keeping even as yo do. Now you can see all the wiring necessary to cut and splice. Happy cord replacing! As for me, I am headed for the store, as I am not so sure I can remember how to get the darn thing put back together. But it was fun taking it apart!

Tips for a great answer:
Rotate nozzle to the vertical position. Lift off front cover.
Remove the two bottom plate screws.
Pivot off bottom plate making sure to unhook center tab on inside edge of nozzle.
Remove agitator and used belt from nozzle.
Put new belt on agitator. Position agitator in nozzle orienting agitator end caps with slots on both sides of nozzle. The belt should line up with tab on inside of nozzle.
Attach belt to motor pulley.
Replace bottom place by first hooking it to center tab on inside of nozzle.
Reposition screws and front cover.
Hope this helps!
