Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. This is a bit of a tricky one on your first go so be gentle. Basically what you have to do is lift off the switch cover to reveal the switch proper. If you are standing behind the machine as if you were about to use it the switch cover will be on the right side of the vacuum. The switch cover has 1 protrusion on its left hand side (closest to the machine body) which has to be squeezed as you lift the cover up. Use a thin flat blade screwdrive or a pointy knife (the slimmer the better) to slide down the side of the cover and push the cover to your right (to outside of machine) as you lift or pry the cover up. I found my first one very difficult and came close to totally ruining the switch cover however as soon as you see the cover out you knoww exactly where to push and your next one is a 10 second job.
\015\012With the cover off you will need to undo the screw holding the cord assembly in place it is a torx type driver. Once the screw is out just pull the whole piece straight up and you will be able to see all the wiring and switch it is a very basic job to shorten the cord 8 inches or so and reterminate.
\015\012NB. This is an electrical component do not play with this unless you are suitably trained or qualified as you will put yourself or the next user at risk of electrocution.
\015\012Hope this helps
