    High quality Irwin #2 phillips is stuck in a Makita BTD142 impact driver quick release chuck. It seems like the release ring is broken. I can pull the release ring out but the bit won't move. I've gripped the bit with vice grips, no help. Anyone have any ideas? I bought in January but I can't find the receipt for a warranty repair.

    I have the same impact driver and unfortunately the same problem. I've tried to extract the phillips bit with needle nose pliers but cannot get the chuck to release....... Any ideas?

What has happened is the hex part of the bit has twisted slightly making it hard to remove. What I would do if you are comfortable with partial disassembly is remove the quick release mechanish. There is a split ring that comes off first and then a washer and spring, next remove the outer collar and SMALL steel ball from side of chuck. I take a pick (dental tool) and push up or try and twist the stuck bit. Sometimes it takes while but usually this works. Let me know if I can try and help further.

I've had the same issue and resolved it with 2 part epoxy. Clean what's left of the broken bit still stuck in the chuck so it's free of oil/grease/dirt with some brake cleaner or similar. Mix epoxy (an eraser's worth) and apply to the tip of a ground off nail or similar and allow epoxy to set. Now you have something to hang on to. Release the spring loaded chuck and pull on the nail - broken bit comes out. Worked for me.

My friend just had a problem where the shaft of a socket adapter broke off inside the the driver. Taking the spring assembly out didn't help as it was wedged so he used a screw/bolt extractor (ez out style thing). Drill a 5/32 hole in the broken piece, pound in the extractor and wiggle it back and forth to get it out. Beats buying a new chuck, or whatever that end piece is called on these drivers...

I had a more serious problem. I think I used a bit that was not compatible with the chuck and it got really wedged in there. I tried clamping the bit in a vice and wiggling, it out to no avail. I then tried a little reverse impact while clamped in the vice, and snap, the bit broke off inside. It was hardened steel, so no drilling it out. The bit was so jammed, I had to replace the anvil. The following site had a great video on how to get into my drill, and had the part in stock too. Brilliant. thanks for all the posts.

Thanks for your suggestions but unfortunately didn't have much success. Finally broke down and took it into a factory authorized service center. They had to disassemble the impact driver and replace the "receiver" to the tune of $85. I suppose I could have fixed it, but did'nt have the time or attention span. Thanks again for all of your suggestions.

The chuck on my new makita drill is stuck with a drill bit in it. It won't open back up.


This is caused by tightening the chuck using the drills power, if you clamp the bit in a vice and using a pair of multi grips on the chuck in an anti clockwise direction gently bounce the grips and after a few tries it will undo, don't use too much pressure or try to unwind it in one move or myou will damage the chuck sleeve

How do i fasten the the drilling bit in the machine ?


For the pictured drill motor, you put the bit in and use a "chuck key" to tighten the chuck onto the bit...

If the photo is not your machine but you have an SDS type chuck, you insert the bit, pull back on a collar and twist the bit until you feel it engage and release the collar. When seated properly you cannot pull the bit out without pulling back on the collar.

Bit tighten stuck open


If you mean the chuck jaws seem stuck open, spray around them with some penetrating oil or spray like WD-40, RP-7 or similar and let sit for a couple hours... Then you can tap around the chuck body with a light hammer or spanner etc... just lightly tap... Then if the chuck has an arbor lock to prevcent it from spinning, be sure that is engaged then try to release the chuck jaws. Sounds like they are stuck open through tight friction or rusting on the inside edges (that you dont see). Be careful not to leave them in the fully open position when stored as this is exactly what can happen!

Keyless chuck is stuck with bit inside I can't turn it counter clockwise to unlock I have a Makita 6349d drill


Try two channel lock pliers.
Hold the bit close the the base with one.
Take the other (cloth comes in handy here to prevent marring) and turn the chuck counter clockwise to release.

Alternative (little WD40 on the chuck)
One channel lock plier hold the chuck and put the drill in reverse.
The WD40 should allow the chuck to release easier.

Good luck!

Drill bit is stuck inside my makita drill chuck


Try using the low torque setting on the drill when reversing and something to assist you getting a better grip to hold the chuck from spinning when reversing. This may help.

Bit is stuck in btd142 driver


the makita impact drivers are picky about the bit that you use. if you use a single sided bit you have to make sure the distance between the channel and the end is 9mm (3/8) and if you're using a double sided bit you have to make sure the distance from tip to channel is 12mm (15/32)

try using a 1/4" wrench on the bit in reverse while pulling the collar back. if that doesnt work, tap the tip of the bit with a hammer with the collar pulled back
