if you are hopeless at DIY then don't attempt this repair for those that have some DIY skills then you should be fine there are some very good videos on youtube on how to change the clutch assembly..TIP dyson sell a belt puller but unless you are repairing them all the time you can make your own ..i used a small roller [that you would use to paint with ] the L shaped handle just needs a little bending in a workmate or vice then chop off the end to make a J shape steel tool and the handle has plenty of grip ...i am sure many of you will have at least one of these little pain roller in your shed that you can modify .even if you dont its worth buying one and modifying it ..IT was a massive help putting the belt on the brush bar
you may find that the steel pin or pins on the clutch cover may have bent of rusted .if so remove them mine had snapped and i think thats what caused the clutch to fail ..also you may find that the brush bar wont work when you use the machine ..just use your foot to nudge the clutch actuator with your foot to make sure the brush bar is working .i asked dyson why and the answer was because its a new clutch in an old machine the belts are stiff and will slacken off in time meanwhile use your foot if the brush bar wont go on its own accord ..another good idea it to change the post motor and the bin filters .i noticed on my machine that the post motor cover had broken and half the suction was escaping .so i have ordered an replacement from AMAZON ...
