Einleitung

The new duct will not come with any additional attached pieces. The old duct will need to be picked clean of parts and transferred to the new one, including rubber gaskets. You will need a Torx T15 driver. A T15 bit with separate driver will not work, as the shanks on these are too large to fit into some of the deep well holes. The driver will need to be about 4” long. Your machine may require the security version - being hollow, or having a hole in the end to mate with a pin found in anti-tamper T15 fasteners. Throughout this process, it is important to keep in mind that it is more important to not damage pieces that you are removing than it is to not damage the part you are replacing. If you are tempted to force something, make sure what may get broken is the part you are planning on throwing away anyway, rather than the part you are attempting to salvage from it. If you think you might get confused, there is no shame in taking pictures. Lots of pictures.

For clarification of terms like cyclone assembly, u-bend pipe, intake cover, exhaust cover, hose assembly, exhaust seal, entry seal, pre-filter seal, cleaner head, port plate, exhaust pipe assembly, etc., refer to online replacement parts diagrams.
