Going by the video, grab the cone and pull! It will come out. Maybe try and twist/bend. Only once its out can you get to the screw within to split the unit down and get to the internals.

You don't all agree about the risk... Washing or not washing, that's the question !
I 've given up trying to pull the cone (and my husband too), completely stuck !

Try the following:

Get your husband to hold the cyclone and you can push the cone down with your foot.

Or go outside and find a curb or something like a brick. Then smack the cone against the brick, it should split open.

If not, then lie the cyclone and dig your hand in, hold/wrestle the shroud down (the thing which looks like a beehive thing with loads of holes) and pull the cone up. One of these must work.
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

The only risk you have is washing a lump of hair or similar into one of the holes, blocking it.

Does your husband have an airline or similar? A good blast through (outside) may do it, try and blast through each hole.

Or high pressure water as mentioned. There's no metal parts inside, as long as you shake the assembly until no more water comes out then leave to dey in a warm place it will soon evaporate

Not sure why, but I REALLY like his voice... Half expect him to swig from a can of fosters every now and again...

He is on here, but doesn't appear much. He knows his stuff.

Hello everybody ! I've done it !!  :icon_nod:
I've just done it by myself without any help.
I've been inspired by your first option Parwaz : I've blocked the cyclone lying on the floor against my left foot and pushed the cone down with the other foot. That's it !
So a quite conventionnal way... sorry for not providing a video gag experimenting the brick way...
Let's try to get the screws out now, that should be easier
Many thanks, you saved me
Goodbye from Paris

Great tutorial video, just done one following its instructions. The cone came off easily hardest part was taking off the handle. I find it easier if I know what's coming off ... so here's pictures of handle
