Assuming you mean the long cylindrical filter that's in the bag compartment, you just pull it out using the little handle at the bottom. They are sometimes very tight, and you can use something like a screwdriver to lever it out (care not to damage the main casing). When inserting the new filter, lift the little metal lever so it's pushed up behind it (that's just a device that stops you closing the door with no filter in place.
I hope this is helpful. If so, please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

Useful Tips for Sebo's X1 Bagged upright vacuum.


Own a Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged upright or perhaps a Windsor-Sensor model? Here are a few tips to get more out of your machine. 
When it comes to filter replacement, the standard cone/tube shaped filter can actually be cleaned by the Sebo if only just for a short moment just to get rid of any attached dirt the filter has accumulated. By removing the filter tube, the auto stop clip comes down, but by lifting your finger with this clip upwards and your other hand holding the bin door, the door can actually be locked back into position as it would normally. Then using the standard upholstery t shaped tool, clean the tube leaving it free of any dust and dirt contained in the tube. Once the tube has been cleaned you can take out the bin door and install the filter back in. Sadly the foam motor filter on the top hood cannot be cleaned or washed and has to be replaced.
If the filter tube however is completely stained and you dont have a free spare one to fit, the filter can actually be removed by removing the tie clips on the top and bottom of the holder. Wash the filter and dry in a tumble dryer - EBay in the UK sometimes sell filter squares which can be tied and locked to the cylindrical tube. Once the filter is dry you can then tie it up to the grid again and if the ties get lost, small computer wire ties are a suitable replacement. 
Another feature of the Sebo X which has only just come to light recently with Sebo's user videos is use of the dry cleaning powder. Although Sebo don't actually tell you, by manually rubbing the powder into your carpet with just your fingers rather than raking it in on the top surface you'll get more out the first application of rubbing the powder in and letting it get a better chance of removing actual heavy stains. If you don't want to rub that powder in manually, remove the top hose by unlocking it where it meets the bag dirt channel on the left hand side of the machine at the top. (right hand obviously if you are facing the Sebo) then the Sebo X can be used as a rolling  brush to rub the powder in. After the 30 minutes minimum waiting time, lock the hose back into the X and vacuum up as normal.
This facility of removing the hose/thus cutting the suction is also very useful to rub in bicarbonate of soda into your carpets if you own pets. Bicarbonate of soda is an ideal natural odourizer which will maintain clean areas. Sebo's DuoP dry powder is ideal to do this as well for general stain protection if you like to keep your carpets clean.
The paper bags can also last a lot longer if the dirt your Sebo has collected remains half way at the top rather than naturally falling to the bottom of the bag.My X1 does this with new carpet fluff. Take the crevice tool and push the tool into the top opening of the bag to push the dirt GENTLY down - this will give you extra longevity on the bag used as well as not having to replace it so often. 
There are ways to make your Sebo X1 cost effective!

How to fix squeaking and bag full sign lit on the sebo x4 extra upright vacuum?


Check the main "kitchen roll" filter isn't clogged which is on the left hand side of the bag when the bin door is opened. There could be a clog, either behind the pick out metal grid below the filter roll, or the roll filter requires to be replaced. Can you add more info about the squeaking though? Is it a high pitched squeal all of the time or just intermittent and where it seems to be coming from - it could be excess air escaping from a pierced hose or a drive belt issue.

Sebo squealing


Just spend all afternoon working this one out. Take the upright section away from the bottom by pressing the release button at the bottom of the upright section. You will see two pipes. One pipe has a grill on the top. That is the problem. Mine was slightly loose which may have caused the whistling or it may not have been making a good seal with the upright section. Anyway, I took it off altogether and the noise has gone

Our Sebo Automatic x1 will now only pick up with nozzle. Hight adjustment doesn't seem to operate and no green lights display. No blockage found, roller works okay. Help! Wife becoming v. angry.


The belt on the motor shaft is probably slipping off. I have the same problem and that's what I saw when I opened the vacuum. I keep putting the belt back, but it slips off again. The belts aren't supposed to stretch. I am going to call Sebo and take mine to an authorized service place to make sure that it is just a stretched belt.

Top motor does not work on felix sebo


Your Sebo Felix needs to have a new suction motor fitted. I had the same problem with mine when it was only nine month old.

How do you cheng the filter


The Sebo X1 has 2 filters. Both should be changed once for every 20 bag changes. The long cylindrical filter in the bag compartment just slides out to the front - grab the little handle at the bottom and pull forwards - it can be a bit stuck, so you may need to lever it out with a screwdriver or similar. When you put the new one in, make sure you push the little metal lever back up behind it (this is just a simple device to prevent you from shutting the bag compartment when there's no filter present).
To find the second filter, release the foot pedal and lie the handle flat on the floor. This exposes a square panel with lots of small holes in it. Release that panel by squeezing the clip, lift it off and pull the foam filter out. Just drop the new one in and replace the cover, pushing it until it clicks into place. Job done!

I have a Sebo x1. It will not pick up from the head.


Hi
If the wheel isn't moving when the upright handle is swung down normally then the hydrallic action will be broken. The wheel only adjusts to the carpet when the handle is swung down and the wheel goes to the highest position. HOWEVER if you have large pile / thick carpeting then the X1 will struggle to pick this up as it doesn't cope well with thick carpeting. Sebo's G1 series with a manual adjuster dial is better in that respect. Put back the wheel as normal and check that it is lowering once the handle is unlocked. If it doesn't show up with the lights on the front of the hood showing that the wheel is going down, then its either the carpet thickness or the hydrallic wheel mechanism is broken. Contact Sebo in your country and they can usually send out a line diagram or suggest a repair.
