DC25 black clip
« on: January 16, 2015, 06:19:41 PM »
Hi, I have a DC25 in for service and repair.  There is a black clip that's come loose near the ball. Can't quite work out where it goes. I think there is a bit sticking out which has to fit in the hole of it see photo.

Can anyone provide a photo off one in place ?

Thats the fun* clip that provides the spring to pull the wheels upright I think

Either way, here's some pics of it from a DC25 I had in recently if it helps:

It's the sort of thing you'll put in wrong about 4 times before getting it right! I always do!

Thanks guys,

I think I got it in the right place in the end.

The screw was missing and hadn't been vacuumed up, but managed to find a screw to fit with a washer to hold it on.  Seems to do the trick.

Thanks for your replies
