Dyson call this part the "carriage" unit. Swinging valve mechanism probably makes more sense though. Its not as straightforward as you might hope, but here goes:

Start by removing your sole plate:



Then remove your brush roll:

Now remove the clutch cover (if your machine has a clutch). The arrows indicate where the screws are, and the lower photo shows it coming off.

Insert your screwdriver here to dislodge the mechanism:



And the unit can now be removed and split from the part with the two holes in that clips into it:



Now you must get it back together again.  ;)
