Very helpful presentation. Reassembly was fiddley as the new cyclone was not broken and needed a very firm waggle and push to engage with the motor body. The white clip is not easy to grasp at the same time as the body and the cyclone.
I found three small broken black plastic pieces under the white clip- from the lugs of the old cyclone - that had to be removed, with tweezers, before assembling the body and cyclone.
