HEPA Filter Conversion for DYSON V7, V8 Cordless Battery Powered Vacuum - Replace Foam Filter SV11

Watch this how to video.

Check the Dyson HEPA filter kit price: My refurbished Dyson V7 cordless vacuum did not have the HEPA post-motor filter. I thought it was strange that it only came with the standard foam filter because it was the Absolute set, which is the nicest Dyson set.

Fortunately, there is a third-party solution available that replaces the foam filter with a sealed adapter for the HEPA filter. The kit includes both the adapter and the filter and works with either the Dyson V7 or Dyson V8 cordless battery-powered vacuum cleaners.

Buy the HEPA filter conversion kit: The HEPA conversion kit is also available on Ebay - Alternatively, you can buy just the HEPA adapter here - and the HEPA filters separately -

If you want to convert a Dyson V6 to HEPA filter, it uses a different part and process than what is shown in this video. You will need to replace the rear motor cover using this replacement part available on Ebay:

The problem is how do you remove the original foam filter?

In the video, I show 3 different ways to remove the standard foam filter. It's difficult because you need a thin piece of plastic to wedge between the motor and filter housing, and pry of the filter without damaging anything. Using a metal tool would be easiest, but it will damage the plastic.

I used old gift cards to wedge between the motor housing and filter. trusting the gift cards caused the filter housing to come off with such uncontrolled speed that it's easy to slip and cut yourself on the motor housing. I recommend wedging the card in between, and using the card as a shield for the motor housing, slip a flat screwdriver between the card and filter, and pry of the filter with the screwdriver.
