I have taken the brush heads off and pulled all the hair out of the small gap between the chrome shaft and the plastic gear housing. Then a small amount of 3-in-1 oil into that gap to lube the internals and just a little through the air intake on the side of the head to clean and lube the seals and it works like new. This lasts about 9 months under high use and the process takes roughly 10 minutes.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo
4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off
5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.
6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo
9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart
10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.

You can remove that short length of pipe very easily. Just pull it away from the fitting at the vacuum end and unscrew it from the brush bar end. While you've got it off, check it for splits (which are common) and replace it with a new one if it is damaged.

Testimonial: "Solved problem first time,also one we thought was a manufacturing fault,that side hose uremovable,were doing it wrong and this told us the right way."
The brush will only spin when the machine is reclined. Not when the machine is stood upright.
If the brush doesn't turn when the machine is reclined, and the brush control set to "auto", you have a brush bar and/or belt problem.
