Next, run all the wires where they need to go under the airflow duct

ila_rendered

Then, fit the first half of the airflow duct, running the wires through their holes

ila_rendered

Pop the PCB in, screw it down and populate the wires

ila_rendered

Fit the seal to the cyclone locating part, then fit the top half of the airflow duct and screw it down

ila_rendered

Grab the part I kept calling the wheel housing earlier, which is actually probably maybe the yolk assembly, and fit the 2 rollers

ila_rendered

Fit the white cog

ila_rendered

Next, fit the stabilizer lock bar to the internal hose bracket

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Screw this to the other bit

Clip the washers and cradle to the wheel axle

ila_rendered

Then drop the whole lot onto the machine

ila_rendered

And do up all the screws, manipulating it about as it need to be manipulated

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Pull the internal hose out and secure it in place at the top

ila_rendered

Fit the post motor filter back plate and hide all those nasty screws

ila_rendered

Next, find the brushroll plug cover and feed the wires under the plastic part

ila_rendered

Wire it all back up

ila_rendered

And fit it into place

With that, you can recline the machine if it's not already, and slide the top cover on

ila_rendered

Then, fit a wheel!

ila_rendered

Pop the post motor filter back on

ila_rendered

Then fit the other wheel

ila_rendered

Up top now, and fit the wiring to where it needs to go, plugging it in here and there

ila_rendered

Pop the switch covers together

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Then fit the switch cover to the chassis, checking switch operation once screwed together



Tools back on!

Wand handle next

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

ila_rendered

Popped that onto the cleaner



Hose now!

ila_rendered

Inner red locking ring and spring fitted now

ila_rendered

White cover clipped on (I think this stops the red part pinging out and it all jamming up if the hose is pulled on the wand)

ila_rendered

Push the outer rubber collar onto the inner black collar, lining up the tabs

ila_rendered

Then clip the end part onto all of that

Hose is a bit cleaner for a spin through the washing machine

ila_rendered

Next, fit the stupid bottom cord hook, then wipe the smile off it's smug stupid falling out face by fitting the hose, trapping it forever

ila_rendered

Blimey, 1 SCREW LEFT  :king:

ila_rendered

Which sits under all this

ila_rendered

Clunk, Click



and it's done!

So there we have it, the first ever Dyson DC41 Mk2 stripdown thread probably anywhere, and since Dyson do not release the service manuals, probably the only place you will find the info!

I hope this helps people who want to fix or refurbish their own machines, collectors have a good ogle at the inside of one, and people in the trade who will do what I will do, and in the future follow this thread with their own basket case model sat on the bench!

As always, thanks for reading! I'm off to bed.

Thanks for taking the time and effort on this one.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

Don't know what it is but even with this fantastic thread noting interests me at all about these newer dysons, I just think there to over complicated for no apparent reason.
