Circlip for DC04 Clutch
« on: September 06, 2015, 04:59:42 AM »
I am new to the forum so please forgive me if this is not allowed.

My DC04 (clutch model) needed new belts so I watched how to do the repair and then had a go. When it came to removing the circlip I didn't have any circlip pliers that small so used 2 screwdrivers instead and....ping off it came, but I have lost it!
Been searching high and low for ages, but nope....can't find it.

So my question..where can I get another one from rather then buying a complete clutch.
I read the page on this site about clutch refurbishment, and it doesn't look like a standard 6mm circlip, so I assume I need a Dyson one?
Thanks you.

Hi & welcome to the forum, don't think you'll find the circlip listed anywhere as  an individual spare part. Unless 1 of the guys is willing to send you 1 from a knackered clutch, your best bet is to buy a clutch from Manchester vacs. They're not expensive.

If you needed anything at all from our shop, I would be happy to put one in there FOC.

If anyone else has one handy, they are more than welcome to say as well.

Have you tried a motor factors ?

I know what you mean though, I have never been able to find pliers to fit.

That sounds fair. I am fed up hurting my hands stretching the belts, so if I was to buy from https://manchestervacs.co.uk/Dyson/DC04-spares.html/Dyson-Belt-Removal-Tool Dyson Belt and Brushroll Removal Tool would you throw in a circlip?
Thanks
