Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Sounds like you are having difficulty stretching the drive belt so that the roller end clip can be slid into place.
The end clips on the roller brush are keyed so they can only go into the retainers one way. Remove the belt and check to see what the orientation of the end pieces should be in order for the brush to seat on the vacuum body and mark an alignment if necessary. Remove the brush, add the belt and replace the brush in the vacuum with the roller retainers in the proper position. You may have to stretch the belt a bit, but it should fit in.

Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.
Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.
If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.
Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.
Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.
Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.
Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.
Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.
Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.
