Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
You do not have to disassemble the vacuum to get to the post motor filter. The above person does not know the DC17 if they are telling you this.
You simply remove one Phillips head screw, it is Phillips because most consumers won't have a T-15 driver at home. Remove that screw, the cover pops off and you take out the filter and replace it.

Agree with the last two posters. Once you know the post filter exists and you find the hidden screw on the bottom of the vacuum the job is easy. Dyson vacuums work great but are overpriced and the filters are too. They give very poor instructions on maintaining their vacuums and if you don't have Internet getting parts at a reasonable price is next to impossible.

You must disassemble the vacuum to get to it. This is an incredible pain which is why vacuum technicians who service Dysons charge upwards of $40 to change these filters. I would not recommend trying to get to it yourself but if you are handy, take apart the lower housing and you will find it behind the fan motor leading into the cannister housing.
