Where can I find pedal plunger for DC18?
« on: October 02, 2020, 12:08:23 AM »
The pedal plunger on my DC18 vacuum broke, and every parts store (online or brick and mortar) that I've checked says the part is out of stock.

Any idea on sources that might have this part? I assume that a part from another Dyson vac won't fit it.

I have the spring that clips onto it, but the plastic pedal plunger itself has broken.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I might have one new, will have a look but have to break into the garage tomorrow.
Bear with me as i lost the keys last week, garage - shed - roof bars and workshop keys....

If i remember right there is a spring too that goes with this plunger, i replaced one 3 years ago...

Thanks for looking

Are you the chap who bought one of these off us today?

If not, and if Ryevac hasnt got one, we have a full undercarriage available, but its 45.

No, I have not bought a clear plastic plunger from anyone.
Sorry, but I don't need the undercarriage.
But thanks for looking!
