Works for the DC44 animal also. :)

You left out the removal of the screw above the charging port.

And after unscrewing the 2nd screw, you need very fine tweezers to extract it.

This experience has convinced me never to buy a Dyson product. Their manual gives no info about replacing the battery.

Vu Nguyen and contributors should definitely go back in and REVISE these instructions to include the second screw mentioned by Mike 7/29/18. I almost broke my vacuum because I trust iFixit to vet their content. I discovered the second screw after going to another site and only saw Mike’s post after returning here to see if I missed something - I did: I didn’t read his comments!

Yikes! Thanks goodness I read the comments before I too almost broke something by not removing the second screw!
