DC08 contact head wheels removal
« on: January 07, 2021, 02:08:27 AM »
I have a contact head which came with my DC08 vacuum cleaner. Its in great condition but long hair has jammed the little wheels (casters) so that they are to tight to roll over the floor.
Does anybody know if they can be dismounted so that I can free them up and re mount them?

They are very firmly pressed on, the metal axle in between them has deep one-way ridges to ensure the wheel does not come off accidentally. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to remove these wheels. They can be prized off eventually but you risk distorting the surrounding areas of plastic. I have done it before but please take great care with it otherwise you may end up with a totally damaged nozzle that requires replacement altogether
