Question about Electrolux Vacuums
When viewing from the rear there are small protrusions at 2 & 4 o'clock on one side and 8 & 10 o'clock on the other side of the motor suspension bracket. These are hooked behind an internal ridge in the barrel. On one side the barrel must be expanded at these points and the motor suspension bracket will pop out on that side under the action of the support spring on the end of the motor. There is a special tool for this but it can be achieved as below.
You will need two screwdrivers smallish but still strong/stiff enough.
At the 3 o'clock position insert one screwdriver from the rear between the barrel & the plastic motor bracket. Lever against the plastic bracket using the tip to expand the barrel outwards. Make sure the screwdriver is inserted far enough until the tip is against the ridge in the barrel. The stiffness of the ridge will keep distortion of the barrel to a minimum. Insert a second screwdriver at the same point. Keep levering the barrel outwards far enough so that the second can be pushed past the ridge holding the barrel outwards. Remove the first screwdriver and lever the barrel outwards working towards the 2 & 4 o’clock positions until the bracket pops out on that side. The other side then will also be free.
