Question about Drills
Chuck won't open to release drill bit
Use some kind of lube like liquid wrench or wd40 and let it set for a bit. Then tap it with anything like a wrench, hammer, etc.

It's best not to use the drill power and your hand to try and release. Or tighten for that matter.
Set the drill down, and try using both hands on the clutch.
If that don't work, try using vise-grips or channel locks.
If that don't work, whip out of the WD-40 and let soak and then try again.

SOURCE: chuck will not release bit
the Chuck should be 2 Part.
Use 2 pair of stillsons Or pipe wrenches, Tight On the 2 Chuck Parts, Crack in opposite Directions.
Alternative, Use Wrench On Chuck Jaw, Short sharp Blow With Hammer.

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.
