I have a Kirby G5 upright vacuum, and just recently when I opened the outer bag to change the bag inside, I noticed there was dust and dirt completely covering inside the bag. After inspecting the machine further I noticed that there was a small tear in the tube that connects the bottom boot of the bag to the part which the bag attaches to, I believe this part is called the Fill Tube. How can I remove the old and replace it?
