I stumbled onto this site when looking for the dreaded central wheel problem on my DC41. I called a local repair shop near me and they told me that I had to replace the entire head ($160 US).
A few posts earlier on this site showed what looked like an alternative solution, partial head replacement. That is good news. I haven't dug into it yet but my central wheel is just starting to fail and get hung up.
With that being said, can I just replace the wheel seeing as the place to hold the axle is still intact? Or do I need to replace the head with either a partial or full change out?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
