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 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--

The dc925 and the current model dcd950 along with several other models of Dewalt 's line of cordless hammer drills DO NOT have a screw inside removal requires a CHUCK REMOVAL FIXTURE part #

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 dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.

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.
