Question about Bosch Drills
I put the red keyless chuck into the chuck and tighten it down and when I try to put in a drill bit, the chuck does not tighten no matter how I turn it. The three clamps inside move, but don't tighten up.
Try not inserting the bit all the way in until it bottoms- it should not bottom. Also make sure it is the correct size range for the bits you have.

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

These units have only been out for a short while and most are on warranty. Take it to a Bosch Service center in your area and they will replace the front of the unit. Unfortunatly this is a problem with this type of unit. The bit will deform slightly from the impacting action and lock itself in the chuck.

if the chuck is rusted start with some WD-40 on the chuck body. Then what I would do is take a rag and wrap around the chuck collar and using a pair of channel locks grip the collar with enough pressure to hold but not break it and using the tool in the low position pull the trigger switch SLOWLY and see if that doesn't free up the chuck. Let me know if still stuck and I will come up with something else, but this usually works for me.

if chuck is wide open ,look down inside there should be an allen screw or bolt at the bottom of the chuck it should undo anti clocwise and the chuck comes off
