Hi Barry and thank you for writing Yes, this is the lever that allows the vacuum to be upright or recline the machines handle. I hope this helps and good luck with your repair.

I'm old school...take it apart and remember the order and where you took it off of. lower end was easy, 5 screws only and only one way to reinstall.

Detent lever required disassembly of upper half of handle followed by disassembly of the lower half. after that it was easy, just two screws. then reverse the order you got there and its done...
