I've ordered another torx 15 screwdriver as I've lost mine somewhere  :'( :'(. It's expected to arrive between Wednesday and Thursday. Can I still use the machine?

TBH itís best if you make sure the seal is on right and itís sealed all the way around with no gaps
Itís like that for a reason, so no air escapes

I noticed that one of the seal bit isn;t on the cyclone. Can I use it like it is or will it damage the seal?

Are you sure itís a hissing noise? The cyclones can be howling when theyíre all clean, and youíre not used to the noise since itís a clear air path, so itíll make some noise

There's no gaps. Could the seal need replacing again? I fitted the seal properly and tightly.

Check around the perimeter, do you see any gaps? It could be hissing due to the suction leaking as a result of the seal not being fitted correctly.

I installed a new dc33 gasket on the cyclone ( a Qtex one) the one which is prone to damage . Once I installed and used the machine I can hear a very small hiss from the cyclone. Is it a problem?

thanks, but that's not quite it--

this is the indicator, you can kind of see that it's a rotating disc with a red wedge. the bottom has a protrusion that sits inside a helical receptacle on a rubber diaphragm, so that it spins as the pressure differential changes. I'm going to guess the spring sits under the diaphragm rather than between it and the disc.

Not sure if this is the right type, but it shows where the spring is located: on the centre lug and in front of the 2 plastic pegs.

Yep! To quote the service manual:

The point at which the indicator shows that the dustbag should be changed can be modified by turning the adjustment screw (Figure 6-7, Item 1) as follows:
Counterclockwise: Indication to change the dustbag occurs earlier Clockwise: Indication to change the dustbag occurs later

This rotary-type indicator also has an adjustment screw--I just need to figure out where in the assembly the spring goes.
