Cleaning the lifetime HEPA filter from my Dyson DC08 Allergy

18
Found 3rd Mar 2009
So the manual says clean every 6 months, it shows some stupid picture about taking the sponge looking thing out of the holder. The problem is it seems mine is fully enclosed I can't take it out and clean it. I can order a new one for £11 which is the one where you can take the sponge out and clean, but mine looks more like a cabin filter for a car?

This is a fairly straightforward operation - TRUST ME! (I'm a Dr!) lol!
Now then Step One.

Bring Dyson towards you
Step 2. Look at the bottom where the brush bar is
Step 3 Unclick the filter part....

Are you with me on this one?

Ooooohhhhhh!! I soooooo wanna see that too!!!!!!! ;-)
Just read this thread ! Absolutley hilarious PMSL !!!
But dont worry lumoruk, I did something similar when the first bagless DC02 came out. I emptied the rubber guts out of the clear colllection bin along with the dust straight into the refuse. Then spent rest of the day trying to figure out why the cyclone had been replaced by a mild gust :oops:
