Anyone worked on one of these?
The brushroll is sticky but I cannot take apart to inspect  :'(

I had one, really good  damn powerful handheld! I dont think  you can take the brush cover off without breaking it, or if I'm wrong, there may be screws behind the cover, be careful though because its  a really good vacuum
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I took mine part,  on the left side of the vacuum there are visible screws, check the other side if there is, and it's been ages since I took mine prt, but I no longer have it.  I do remember that two screws are under the brushbar sole plate

They have moulded plastic over the screw on soleplate, (knew we've done them before) so we drilled it out & got inside.
The brushroll was gunked up but also the switch is dodgy.

Cool, had to throw mine away cos the switch had gone, would be nice of it had just "on" and "off" and that's it tbh
