I have lifted the metal extension on the handle and instead of this lifting the handle and flexi hose away from the machine, it has come completely out! - so at present I have the metal rod seperate and the flexi hose still intact on the hoover. There appears to be a small black section inside the flexi hose which appears should be there to stop this happening.
So basically I need to reattach this black section to the metal rod inside the hose. I can detach the hose at the bottom with the clip although cannot get the black section out as that is at right angle - I cannot see how to detach the flexi hose at the top from the handle
- hope this makes sense and if so anyone any idea?
