Answers :

You need to get a long handled t-15 driver or a t-15 bit and a bit holder and extension for a 1/4" drive socket set (12" or longer extension) to get this apart. There are only something like 6 pcs in there and once you get it apart, cleaning it is very easy. Here's a good website on how to take it apart and put it back together. I have done this and it makes a difference. Be sure to sanitize everything once you have it apart. Takes out any funky smells.

I have a windsor vsp 14, it is making a bad grinding noise, when I take the top blue piece off it stops, the brush works fine and when I put the top back on it grinds really loud and gets hot. it still vacuums and the belt and brush are working fine, can't figure it out. and when the lid is on I cant see what its grinding on. It only makes a grinding noise when you pull handle back and engade to vacuum flor and stops when you put it upright.

I have a DC 15 Dyson Ball Vacuum. I've removed and cleaned the filter. I can't get the lid to close properly. I don't want to force it and break something. There is some kind of a red spring loaded tab that seems to be in the way. How do I reseal the top of the vacuum?
