I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!

There is no retaining screw with this Rohm chuck (Dewalt PN$ 330075-75 / ~$50 approx cost).
Dewalt sells a special chuck removal tool for ~$75 chuck (nice and user friendly...NOT !!! ).  I have not used or seen this tool, but it's my understanding you're supposed to remove the transmission and gear box together and place them in this tool / fixture which is the tightened into a vise. Once secured, you can then safely remove the chuck without damaging anything.
Now here's the way I'd do it.  Get the largest (high quality) 'L' shaped allen wrench that will chuck up and chuck the short section into the drill.  Put a steel pipe over the arm of the allen wrench for leverage.  Carefully clamp the drill to a table or carefully secure it in your vice with soft jaws and then try twisting the allen wrench / handle counter-clockwise until the chuck loosens.
You could also try this same idea with a slightly different approach, which is to firmly secure the 'L' portion of the allen wrench in your vice.  Then chuck up the drill to the long straight end of the allen wrench.  Once its chucked up, then carefully and slowly with very firm pressure twist / unscrew the drill body counter-clockwise until the chuck loosens.  
Install the new chuck using this same procedure in reverse.  If you don't want to bother with any of this, I believe you can also buy the chuck + spindle / housing assembly as a unit for about ~$125.  Then you'd simply take the drill apart, remove the old assembly and install the new one without the risk of damage from clamping your drill body to tight or turning things the wrong way, etc.
Good luck to you and I hope one of these works out for you!

Thank you. Setting the chuck in a large vice and turning the drill counter clockwise (posted on 18 October 2009) worked a treat. I'd definitely suggest it too.

It should have a retaining screw as far as I know. It may be a torx head in this machine though. Normally left hand thread screw, then normal thread for the actual chuck. It's always worth tightening the chuck a bit before removing the inner screw as it can put pressure on it and make it harder to loosen.

How to get the chuck off a dcd950 dewalt hammer drill


Only the screw in the centre of the chuck would be l/h tread, the chuck should be normal thread and come off in an anti clockwise direction. Please confirm drill model number.They did a version where you needed a service tool to remove it and refit. It is torqued on.

How can i remove the chuck from my cordless dewalt power drill


Hello, W/D here.

To remove your chuck, open the jaws of the chuck fully, but don't open them so tight that they lock in the open position. Remove the screw inside the chuck. Spray the inside of the chuck with penetrating oil. Tap around the edge of the chuck, while pulling it away from the motor.
It should come right off, with a little effort.

Best regards, --W/D--

How to--- chuck removal DC925 drill DeWalt


Open the chuck fully. Inside the center bottom of the chuck you will normally find a reverse threaded lock screw that you must first remove. If it is hard to loosen, you may need to heat it with a micro torch or a heat gun to make the thread lock compound slip. Then fasten the smaller end of an allen key firmly into the jaws of the chuck. Engage the low gear. Then hit the longer end rapidly with a hammer to unscrew the chuck by rotating it anti clockwise.

Having problem to remove chuck to replace it on dewalt dc988 18v


Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

I have a dewalt dc925 combi drill the chuck keep slipping and also the setting ring is hard to adjust . What can i do top solve this?


Probably needs a new transmission. They cost about $34 plus shipping. Easy to fix. Just remove the four torx screws from the metal (gray in color) part $of the drill. Then pull it apart. The transmission comes in a one piece cassette. Insert it, and put the front back on and tighten the screws.

Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.


I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.
