Question about Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The noise is likely the clutch if you have a cracked brush bar. If so replace the brush bar, also replace the belts in the clutch or the clutch if the belts are stretched out.

It MAY be a clutch issue. I had a similar problem with my DC07 Animal recently a posted a solution elsewhere on this site, but here's the summary. To reset the clutch on my model, recline the vacuum, turn it on it's side and slowly change the carpet/bare floor knob from one setting to the other about 6 times. This apparently reset the clutch and now it works fine. You may also wish to call DYSON. They're very helpful and walk you through troubleshooting before recommending servicing. Their number is 1-866-693-9766. They'll need your model and serial number (located on bottom of uinit).

The end caps of the brush assembly which contain the bearings are only a push fit onto the spindle (quite tight). Remove these and the brush bar will pass through the drive belt loop. To achieve this the belt has to be stretched slightly so care has to be taken not to over-stretch what might be a belt getting to the end of its life. When refitting the end caps do not forget to aline them properly so they fit into the sole plate recesses correctly.
I cannot see at the moment how to replace the drive belt on the DC 07 without significant dismantling (that will probably be my next job) I do not see the use of the Dyson tool you offered.
