OK, but be warned... it's not so difficult getting the thing apart, but making a neat job of reassembly has been known to drive grown men to despair. And that's because you have to remove the airbelt. But first things first:
1. remove the hose
2. remove the hose-retaining ring
3. remove the flap that covers the green filter.
4. remove the screw beneath that flap nearest to the handle (there's a deeply recessed screw on the other side, but you can ignore that)
5. remove the clip at the back of the machine where the airbelt joins (lever it off carefully with a screwdriver)
6. this is where it begins to get interesting. The airbelt is in two parts - the bulky foam strip and a thin material cover. The cover is held in grooves, top and bottom, running all the way round the machine, by two thin plastic strips around which it is wrapped and which just slip into those grooves. The first challenge is to get those strips, and the covering material, out without damaging them. Just prise one end out with a small screwdriver and work your way around the machine - it's more a matter of patience than anything else. (The second challenge is getting it back neatly!)
7. remove the ends of the foam strip far enough to reveal two plastic clips that hold top and bottom of the body together
8. prise those clips off with a screwdriver.
9. it should now be possible to lift the top cover off. It can be a bit fiddly getting it off over the neck where the hose plugs in, but it does come off.
10. the cable rewind spool is now revealed in all its glory.
11. if you've found my advice helpful so far, here's a final piece... don't try to fit a new cable to the old spool - fit a complete new spool.
12. good luck!

I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
Agree with Philip Gaut here.
But:
[1] If suspecting a fault in a cable, do the reasonable thing and first replace (or at least check) the plug -- replace/measure the fuse, and if not replacing the whole plug then inspect how the wires are connected in it. I totally disassembled my wife's SEBO C2.1 for no reason --- the wires were frayed where they enter the plug.
[2] I had no problem whatsoever plugging the airbelt cover back in its grooves. I also had no need to use any screwdriver/flat metal thingy to whip off the belt cover.
[2b] What did go wrong was that when taking apart, the foam 'snake' that makes up the body of the airbelt broke in half near a corner. If I had done it a bit more carefully, supporting it with one hand (especially when rounding corners) while teasing off with the other, it wouldn't have happened. Another consideration is that she got hers in 2000 (before we even met, and one voltage, two countries and houses houses ago!), so the fact that the foam is a bit brittle may be just because of age.
[3] After re-assembling it wasn't sucking anymore as it should --- but clicking the secondary filterbox more precisely in place did it. Now it sucks better than a month ago (maybe the filter was already bit misplaced), you just see a bit of an irregularity on one corner under the 'pantyhose' airbelt cover.

Dyson DC 14 hose has no suction, with or without brush attachments. Hot air shoots out from the base of the canister when I try to use the hose. I cleaned the top filter, but can't figure out how to remove the hepa filter to clean it without destroying the case. It looks like it might take three hands to insert pennies and "flip" the case open as is suggested on a youtube video for a different model. Would this even help, assuming I could get the thing open?

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?
