have changed out the motor on my DC24 and it works well. However I am having trouble with the rear stabiliser bar spring. The spring wasn't taken off the stabiliser bar but the bar was released from the housing. I am unable to work out how the spring should be refitted and it looks distorted when the machine is in the upright position. Do not recall that looking like that before. Stupidly I didn't take note of the position when I dismantled the machine.
