My Dyson DC 15 Animal appears to have a lower filter but the manual makes no reference to this filter. I sits right underneath the dust bin. Is this a filter and if so how do I change it?

Hi and welcome :)

Yes, that will be the post motor filter. It's mainly there to collect the carbon which comes off the contacts in the motor. Dyson claim it's a lifetime filter but if your machine is worked really hard for a long time you might improve the suction a bit by replacing it. Unless you're having problems I wouldn't worry about it though as it is unlikely to make much difference (and if it does need replacing then that's a good sign that your motor is near the end of it's life and you'd be better off replacing that).

Or just try washing it, that works on most Dysons.
