I pried the wheels off with a couple of tyre levers.
Under the wheels are a couple of Torx screws.
Undo these and the casing comes apart.

Can you replace dyson on/off switch dc05 turbobrush

There are a number of places that list replacement switches. There are also a number of DC05 models, though the power switch is not likely to vary across them. Amazon, for instance, has a Dyson Switch for models including the DC05 and six other models (see here
Dyson Switch Dc03 Dc04 Dc05 Dc07 Dc08 Dc11 Dc14 On Off )

This video (ostensibly for a DC08, but the procedure should be pretty much identical) shows how to take the unit apart, get at and test the on/off switch, and replace it if need-be.

My Dyson vacuum cleaner has gone dead when it is switched on.

There is usually a restart button somewhere on the back or bottom of the cleaner.

Taking apart dc05 dyson vacuum cleaner

You have to take the wheels off first to get at two securing screws on each side of the cleaner. First of all remove the plugs in the centre of each wheel (you will probably damage them prizing them out but they are available online as replacements if you make to much of a mess - look online anyway to see what you are dealing with).
