Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

My DC 17 is plugged. I can see through the small hole in the top blue "flower shaped" that the holes at the top of the canister are plugged with hair & dirt. I cannot see anyway to get to these small round holes. Is there a way to remove the top blue "flower shaped" piece? I have removed the inner cone from the clear canister but still cannot get up underneath.

Please kindly follow the steps below to clean your vaccum cleaner,
1.) Remove the clear plastic handle. You\015\012will have to take out two screws and then unclip from the from the\015\012front. It's stiff, I gently used a flat head screw driver to pry it up.

On each side of the long\015\012vertical tubes you will see a single torx screw. You might need to feel\015\012around, they are hard to see since all of the dirt. Unscrew those.

I can see why water wouldnt work. These things were PACKED solid with dog fur and carpet. Each of those cyclone tubes was loaded--- remove the dirt.

I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case.
