Dyson, in the last week or two have just began drastically increasing their spare part prices.
Some spares have doubled in price, some more than doubled.
Is this Dyson trying to squeeze the after-market for more money or something more mundane like the poor dollar to pound exchange rate putting prices in sterling up? We dont know.
What we do know is that Dyson clutches as fitted to DC03, DC04, DC07, DC14, DC27 and DC33 have doubled in price.
This may not have made its way through to the retail channels yet as many will be holding stock bought at old prices, but trust us, genuine Dyson spare parts are set to increase in price across the board.
This makes the prospect of stripping and rebuilding Dyson clutches more appealing to the DIY enthusiast.
There isn’t typically that much that goes wrong with Dyson clutches. The belts stretch and snap over time and/or the white nylon clutch wheel melts like this.
Until now that is.
Yes, the after-market has ridden over the hill to the rescue again!
Just to put these parts in context, here is where they go.
You can find Dyson clutch strip down and rebuild topics >>here<< and >>here<<. It isn’t really an amateur job, but for the experienced technician it isn’t terribly painful either. Especially once you have done a few.
You can buy the wheel (and little circlip) on its own >>here<<.
