And with the handle closing piece on, the handle is done!

Bag door now, the outer trim piece can go on

Bag door latch handle in, along with the rubber locating bushes

Bag holder slid up and the bag door handle located into it so it's pushed down when the handle is lifted

Time for some new bags now

And a new pre motor filter

Now the hose can go on

The non cracked wand and crevice tool get fitted

Back to the wheels, and there is something missing here

The foot pedal

I found the spring for the bag door safety latch that I mislaid when stripping it down (Charlie found it on the floor, whoops...) so fitted that

ila_rendered

Fitted the filter safety latch spring (I took this off so I could close the bag door for storage without needing the very full bag it came with fitted...)

ila_rendered

Fitted a new upholstry tool, and she is done!

Best check it works...


And it does! Sold within 20 minutes of being listed for sale too, which was nice!

Super strip down topic!  :bow:

Was that post motor cover grille warped from overheating in the past?

I thought so, but the motor didnt look like it had been hot, no damage on it, just a warped housing. All I can think of is the vac got put in a hot place, but I would have expected more warping to the hood. Is most strange!

How do the wires go back into the handle? Not the ones from the mains plug but those from the metal part of the handle with the spade connectors? I am trying to reassemble the handle and can't get these back into the grey part of the handle to reconnect. There appear to be three channels in this part of the handle and I assume they run through the middle one?

I used this site to help take apart my X5 bag chamber. I would've figured it out myself but your photos made my job easier lol.

Nice, glad you got the job done!
Photos always help, I find myself looking back on them when doing machines years on from when I last did one!

Ha, I can see @beko1987 is an enthusiast.
I have a question about my ongoing refurb of an x1.1 machine:
Where does Part Number 5319 - Bag Holder Spring (#18 in the exploded diagram) actually go!? I cannot work it out... :-/

Found it! It's under the bag lever bar, which is held in place by the cover (5707). Problem solved... 👍
