Hello!

My festool SRM 45 vacuum cleaner signals about low suction all the time. Seems like previous owner used it without bags. I want to open and and look at the brushes, if i can repair it without sending it to Festool service. I stuck at that point

Just loosen any screw you can find, shouldn't be too hard.

There's an exploded view drawing of the vac on eKat.

did it, tried for about an hour, but afraid of broke the case. Seems like design very unfriendly to repair myself. Thought about take off the handle, but also don't see any screws or something. So from above i can't open it, the same as from the bottom like on the photo.

Find your vac in the ekat link I provided, under dust extractors. You can see on the pictures where the screws and clamps are.

have used the same service draw from https://www.mtmc.co.uk/Festool-SRM-45-LE-EC-230V-/-493549-Spare-Parts__p-93928.aspx website and nothing. I really don't know what to do next, there is no youtube video for it, strange for me
