Take the top cover off, remove the torx screws on each side of the motor housing, remove the screw on the back holding the hose, then you just have to compare the 2 before putting on the new one. Can't tell for sure without a model number to get you a picture. What isn't on the new base, take off the old base and put it on the new one.

Move covers (forcibly !) away from the centreline of cleaner then move to rear until released. The covers are held by slide catches on inner edges.

Thank you for and excellent solution. I have several suggestions:
1) After removing the 11 screws as directed, I was unable to remove the handle. However, I was able to sneak in and remove the one screw that holds the top front thingy. I should warn you that it is easy to break the tab at the switch end of the front thingy. It was zip wired to the handle. (How do I know, I'll let you guess:-)
2) I would recommend re-soldering the wires to the new switch. They are already tinned and take up much less room than push on connectors.
3) Finally, be sure to use insulating shrink tubing. Put it on before soldering. Duh!

I found a solution. At least on my Mobilo HR8572. There are two tabs on the top plastic parts that hold on to the bottom plastic part. These tabs are located above the wheels, if you look closely you will see thicker grey plastic. You have to put a big screwdriver under the top plastic part and move it outward. The tabs are 6mm thick so you have to bend it out considerably. It then pops open. Works a treat and all the motor and electrical components are easily accessible using a simple star driver
