New to fixing my wife's dyson dc14... after I broke some mysterious piece.
Between the dust bin/assembly base and the motor housing below, there appears to be a spot for a little clip that holds it all together tightly on the front of the machine. I dropped the vacuum and shrapnel went flying, that I never found again (during cleaning/moving). There are flexible gaps now between all those pieces, losing suction.
I checked parts warehouse and scoured drawings, and bought a new bin base assembly, but don't see the part I imagine should be there. Any tips on where to look?
