Hi there -) Dyson DC14 Animal. We have [ordered and received]

This answer was rated:

Hi there :-) Dyson DC14 Animal. We have [ordered and received] a filter which the Dyson site says should fit the product, but, the only place we can see which would accomodate it is within the wheel housing. There is a spindle which perfectly matches the hole in the centre of the filter and the diameter of the filter is precise match for the internal diameter of the wheel housing. Should there be a filter within this wheel housing? Do you have a [link to] and picture of the filter which goes in the wheel housing so we can ensure we have the correct one? The fit is very tight and we do not want to break the wheel housing when we put it back on. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paul.
If you go here
is this filter the 2nd or 3rd item?
What country did you buy this in?

Hi Rob. Bought in theUK. Our item is neither of the two you asked about.


The "wheel" housing I mentioned can be found on this page:

And halfway down the page is described as

Air Duct

The filter itself is the first item on this page:


Blue with a yellow perimeter.
