How to remove flexible hose from Vax

12
Posted 9th Mar
giving the Vax a full clean. seen so many people replace old vacum cleaners and than say how much better the suction is on the new model when all really the old one needed was a proper clean.
anyway I can't remove the hose from the plastic casing on this Vax. any tips?

Checked , can't see any bids how to remove hose when attached to body of the vacum
Does the lower hard plastic moulding - into which the hose inserts- not unclip? The oblongish slot looks like it would push in with an appropriate tool, if you kept downward pressure while doing this it should release. There should be another slot on the other side.

Could be one the other side too so get someone to help push both in at the same time, then pull it off

Easy with two people
Get 2 blunt knives or similar, force one into the join above slot and then press the spot while twisting or twiddling the knife. See if you get any movement. If you do, try to keep the gap open while doing the same with the other side, good luck!
You could send an email or online chat. I called hoover and they were very helpful when I had an issue
