Welcome to my first Refurb thread,
Little info: I don't remove the motor so if you want to remove the motor then find another thread, theres plenty about.
So lets start
Electrical tape (Blacks fine)
Spare parts if you break something...
Old new paper
Some music to get us into the mood... Chris Moyles anyone?
My tools as stated earlier: T15, T9, Leccy tape, Old rag
Diet Cola - I prefer Zero but since Aldi don't sell em'
Unhook the power line from the cable hook on the rear of the wand (You should know how to do that - You've used it!
Remove the tools: Upholstery, Brush and crevis
Removing the DC04 side valve. You can use these but they do restrict the suction slightly (Actually worked better on my machine since its half dead)
Remove the Pre-Motor filteration sponge - This one is ALWAYS clean, never cleaned it since 6 months ago...
Cyclone removed from the chassis and ready for stripdown later.
Wand extracted from the hose and put aside for strip down.
