SOURCE: Chuck broke on my hammer drill
To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way.
Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out.
You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight.
Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one.
Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in.
If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn.
Then you should be able to just take it out.
Put the new chuck into the drill.
Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction.
Tighten it up good.
Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good.
The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road.
Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.

Go to a tool rental place with your drill and see if they can match you up with a proper tool for it.
