 4. Re-position SEBO Felix Filter Bag and Close Housing

Re-position the SEBO Felix Filter Bag by making sure the 4 small tabs on the sealing plate fit into the appropriate grooves.  The front tab should loosely fit over the wire latch lock. Push the filter bag cover down firmly until you hear a distinct snap that indicates the cover release flap is locked in place.

How to Change SEBO Felix Upright Exhaust Filter


1. Align SEBO Filter Retaining Ring Clips 

The SEBO Felix S-Class Exhaust Filter strategically wraps itself around the upright to absorb motor noise and remove 99.9% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. The first step to changing this filter is aligning the retaining ring clips with the seam found on the backside of the upright.
