What tool do I need to open a Dyson DC05??
Posted by fixdaddy on Apr 24, 2008
I have a DC05 vacuum cleaner with a few minor problems which I am sure could
easily be fixed if I could open it up. The problem is that the fasteners
(presumably screw heads) are recessed so deeply in the plastic moldings
that I cannot reach them with any tools to find out whether I have the right
Has anyone on this vacuum ever successfully serviced a DC05 to know what
tool is needed so I could buy one.
Thanks in advance

How to remove wheel to access cable storage area? Then ... How to replace electric cable.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I checked with some of my contacts in the vacuum business and they told me that it may not be a United States vacuum and it might be a Canadian or European vacuum and may not be customer friendly to service, if you have a contact with a MAC or Snap On dealer or a metric auto store – show them the screw and they might have something to fit or release the screw head, as per the removing of the wheel and replacing the electric cable, check with your local vac dealer or you may want to check with the Dyson dealer website and or phone # listed below:
