Roller problem Roller keeps stopping. I've emptied the dustbin. removed the roller to see if it is clogged, but appears to be nothing impeding it.  It stops on a short napped rug, and even on the wood floor.  Is the spool that the roller slips into driven by a belt? Can I get in there behind the spool?

Hi. We've got a Dyson DC17 "Animal". It's clogged, and we are unable to separate the purple cyclone cap from the main cyclone body to get to the problem. We've heard of 4 torx screws that take some interesting tactics to access. I've been through this thing with a flashlight, and torx tools for a protracted period, and even after removing the torx screws was unable to ultimately separate the two pieces (main body from purple cap assembly). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx -
