Next is the tool entry port.

Refitting the seal

ila_rendered

Seems the flap just pops out, I'm refitting it so must have removed it!

ila_rendered

Push the loom through from the front

ila_rendered

Then wrap the loom around the bin, fitting the contacts

ila_rendered

Then snap the cover on. Route all the cables

ila_rendered

Then hope to heck everything lines up and the front snaps onto the bin...

ila_rendered

Then push the connector in

ila_rendered.

Rubber up the bin flap

Check it all still works

And these very photos sold it for £120 (back in 2018...)

Throughout all of this you may have noticed the lack of wand. Fully sealed up, I've tried and failed/given up before. Wipe down externally is all it needs.

Also, the above is a full stripdown. For a general refurb, unclip the cyclone assembly from the motor housing and just strip that and the floor head. Wipe down everything else and leave it whole, unless you've got a reason to be in there...

Hope this helps someone! Being such a common machine hopefully people will chip in with alternate ways of doing things, as everyone will have their process. I have mine now!
