Drill bits slip/spin in the keyless chuck. this problem began when the drill was about 3 years old, under light shop use. i replaced the chuck, but the problem continues. this happens with smaller diameter bits.

Re: porter cable 884 cordless drill
Most chucks have a tolerance the cordless drills where designed for drill bits 1/8 and larger the 3/8 chucks are a little better with the smaller bits .Check your owners manual and see if they have a min requirement listed for the bit size

I just looked at some illustrations on ebay of Porter-cable 18 volt drills and they appear to be fairly standard cordless drill/drivers fitted with fairly standard keyless chucks that you get hold of with both hands and twist in opposite directions like you are giving it a Chinese burn. The part of the chuck nearest the bit twists anti-clockwise to loosen.
If you have an SDS drill for heavier duty jobs the chuck is semi-automatic in the drill bit just needs pushing into the chuck and clicks into place but the outer part of the chuck is pulled back in order to release the bit.
I suggest that you do not proceed, Keyless chucks can be problematic especially if dust /debris from material being drilled gets into the chuck. I have had to remove the Keyless chuck from my B&D drill and replace it with a keyed chuck- no problems since.
Switch drill to reverse, grab drill head tight, do not grab bit, pull trigger, chuck will open, switch to forward center new bit hold head tight pull trigger. Make sure bit stays in center, Let me know if this helps.
It is a keyless chuck. Put the drill in reverse (chuck should spin to the left when viewed from the back) and hold the main body area of the chuck with your hand while slowly running the drill. The chuck will open (unless it is broke) and release the bit. You do the opposite (slowing running the drill in forward) for tightening a bit in the chuck.
It should have a keyless chuck, so put the drill in reverse, hold on to the plastic chuck (just behind where the bit connects to the drill) to precent it from spinning and pull the trigger until the chuck loosens. Replace the bit in the reverse order with the drill in "forward."
