Cleaning the cyclones on a Dyson DC17 vacuum cleaner to improve suction

Does your Dyson vacuum cleaner lack suction? If you have replaced the filters without solving the problem then cleaning the cyclone assembly may make a difference.

Below are two videos demonstrating the cyclone being disassembled and reassembled on a Dyson DC17 vacuum cleaner. The first video is short and silent, the second longer with a commentary.

To take apart the cyclone on a Dyson DC17 you will need a star shaped Torx T15 screwdriver. If you do not have one of these they are available from Amazon and other specialist retailers.
