Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

On the back side, just below the cord wrap, remove the flat accessory tool, and then look up into that space where it docks, and you should see a small hole.

You'll take a small screwdriver and push in on that hole/button (you may want a helper for this) while stepping on the front of the vacuum to hold it down, and simultaneously lifting up on the handle to remove it.

This is not exactly the same model, but the process is the same for your vac:
