Question about Kenmore Vacuums
I have had my Kenmore 166 open a few times. There are several screws which need to be removed and a tab on each side next to the brush and a tab near the handle release lever. Use a flat head screwdriver to carefully open the tabs after the screws have been removed. You do not have to remove the screw holding the metal tab next to the handle release lever.
I have succesfully, but not easily, removed this bottom cowl a couple times without removing the wheels but it is not easy and reinstalling it is even harder. I suggest removing the wheel on the left side by removing the lock washer. Removing this wheel from the axle allows the entire axle to be slid out.
Reinstalling the cowl is a bit trickier and will require a new axlelock washer which you can get by taking the axle to any hardware store.
