no, its not the Aquaspeed 170, but Aquaspeed 150. i succeded to unwrap the housing, but did fail in disconnecting or dismounting the power cord terminal.i could not disassemble the Iron to reach the heater. to dismantle, step 1 unscrew 3 visible screws. step 2 lift the heel cover away, by unsnapping 1 hooks at the right and one at the left side of the heel cover. i used thumnbnail to deform the heel cover for not to wear out the snap-in hooks. step 3 remove the dischalk stick (don't know the right wording in english) step 4 lift the top cover (which covers the spray jet part), 2 hooks at both left and right, use thumbnail or flat screwdriver, start at the top hook. step 5 take off the spray and steam buttons, 1 hook at the front side, 1 hook at the outer back side step 6 take off 2 screws: one keeps the upper half of the handle, the other fixes the water container at the heater plate. Attention: when unmounting the container, and turning the iron upside down, a small (4mm diam, ~10 mm length) silicone cylinder part will fall out, some kind of actor of a bimetal thermo switch in the ground plate, which probably controls water flow (not the electric thermostate) so far so good, i got my problem solved, but would like to know how to disassemble the container from the ground plate and how to replace the cable?

SOURCE: tefal express iron cleaning
Thankfully I was able to clean the boiler compartment, by unscrewing the large bolt on the boiler, cleaned with water only, loads of brown yuck came out, It would then not allow me to use the steamer, Waited until the next morning tried again and working brilliantly again.

That is probably because the contacts to the element at the base of the iron are broken.
To disassemble you have to remove the casing, then remove the steam pump at front top of iron and then undo the safety screw mounted on the front of the base plate.
