How to remove handle from a DC03?
« on: October 01, 2011, 02:56:10 PM »
The handle of my dc03 is fractured at the top, the doughnut shaped bit that the switch housing locks onto. Can any one tell me the best way of getting the other end out of the filter housing top so I can remove this handle.

Split the top of the cyclone so you have this:



Look inside it and you will see there is a clip that can be released with a flat blade screwdriver here:
