Question
I am tearing my hair out. My own cleaner broke down and I have been given a Bosch model where the parts seemed to be glued onto the pipe etc., how do I get the curtain part onto the end of the pipe where the main brush head seems glued on???Help please

Answer
Hello Nidal. My apologies, I did answer this several days ago. However, it obviously did not post. I'm sure you have solved the issue by now. If you haven't, I suggest locating the manual on Bosch's website. As you did not include the model number of the vacuum, I am unable to tell you exactly how to disengage the wand. Most all vacuums, though, either are friction-fit or button lock. Friction fit will pull apart, usually a little twisting as you pull helps. If it's the latter, depress the little button and twist and pull. Sometimes, a vise helps.
 Good luck to you. And again, I apologize for the mix-up in responding.

Expertise

Please ask me any questions regarding the efficiency, durability, and value of 99.5% of today's vacuum cleaners, residential and commercial. I am able to help, also, with your residential carpet cleaners and vapor steamers. I cannot answer questions such as "how much should I pay for my vac?" "how often should I change the bag, belt, filter?" or "how often should I vacuum?" , etc. I also will not advise you how to use equipment for other than its original application; including any disassembly or modification not approved by the unit's manufacturer.

Experience

I am the owner of a well-established (sixty-plus years), family-owned & operated vacuum retail and repair business. We are a full service/warranty center for 99.5% of vacuums manufactured. I, personally, have extensive hands-on experience with today's most popular vacuum cleaners, I have not only used the vacs in my own home, I have repaired them. I have been in the floor care industry for over 25 years.

Education/Credentials
I have attended certification seminars with the industry's trade association. My education, however, has been mostly hands-on, carrying on a sixty year old tradition in a brick and mortar 'mom & pop' location.
