Woh do you remove the clip in plate to repair/ reconnect the power lead to the machine
hi, i take it your going on about the plate thats behind the cylinder at the back where the power lead is,
you know when you empty the cylinder and it all lifts up so you can take the cylinder off to empty well you take the cylinder off and the top half then thats loose can be uncliped as well so unclip this off so the whole front of the vac is off and you can see the area thats behind the cylinder, well once you have access to this part and the part you empty is removed and the part above it is removed, now if you look where the wire goes into the vac at the back now look at the front in exactly the same place and you will see a small panel that should be screwed in, this problem you are having is a very common one and i take it you plan on cutting the wire back and fitting it back in.
so you dont get to the connector from the back of the vac where the wire goes into it you get to it from the other side at the front its behind the top part of the cylinder not the part you empty but the part above that so you either need to hold it up to get to this panel or you take it off so its not in your way then you should see the small plastic panel that comes off, once you have this panel off you will then see the wires and the block they are held into and this is the part you need to undo and cut back.
this panel might be held in place with torque star shaped screws but if you have a good fitting flat headed screwdriver you should be able to get it undone using that.
this panel from what i remember has torque screws, so to get to the wires you need to get to the panel is accessed from the front but behind the cylinder you take off, its exaclty opopsite where the wire goes into at the back and once the panel is off you can do the work you need to do.
this is a very common problem on all dysons and it happens to all of them at some point.
if the panel is not held in by screws then it should just be clipped in place, ive not come across one that has not got any screws but they do bring new models out and change them slightly, so your not getting to the wires from the back of the vac where the wire goes in your getting in fro the front of the vac but you need to remove the part you empty and the part above this that swings out to enable you to remove the part you empty then this panel is located just behind their.
i hope you understand what im going on about, if you have found this panel and its the part your going on about then this should just clip off if it dont have screws in it, but make sure its from the front of the vac not the back their will be a small panel behind the yellow part that swings out to get the cylinder off you empty after its full
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
