Hitachi cordless drill, removing chuck

I have a Hitachi DS18 DVB cordless drill and the chuck started to lock up.It's very hard to turn it to loosen or to tighten the chuck. It looks like it will require two very thin wrenches to remove it but I'm not sure and would appreciate any help out there.

    Thanks for the info about the screw inside the chuck. Apparently the screw had come loose and was binding up the forward and reverse movement. After I was able to get to the screw all it needed was to be tightened. Thanks , my drill works again.

Replacing the chuck on a drill is simple when you know the trick. I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and learned how to repair many tools. Open the chuck enough to remove the screw that you will see inside the chuck. It will most likely be reverse thread. The chuck is threaded on the shaft so just simply close the chuck on an allen socket and impact off with air or electric impact tool. If you do not have an impact tool close the chuck on-to the largest allen wrench that will fit into the chuck.(with the long part of the allen wrench projecting out) You will need to set the drill into a vise or strap to work-bench, then strike allen with hammer. Most chucks are removed with one quick impact of the hammer, counter clockwise. Do not squeese the drill too tightly with vise, we used a piece of leather to protect the drill. Good luck. Enjoy

    perfect advice. worked like a charm for removing the chuck on my Hitachi D13Y right-angle drill. at first I tried the 2nd suggestion but didn't get anywhere as I couldn't keep the drill from spinning, so went the impact wrench method and it came right off!

I am trying to remove keyless chuck from Hitachi cordless drill DS 18DVB. I am insertiung flat head screw driver into chuck, turning clockwisw but getting no bite


the screw at the base of the fully opened chuck is a left hand thread
it may be a slot but normally they are philips head or hex head undo that screw by turning as if doing it up
once it is out , hold the shaft and by placing something across the now partially open jaws a quick hit on that object with a hammer will loosen the chuck off the shaft you can place a allen key in the jaws and close them up and use that as an object to hit

How do I remove the drill bit from a Makita6223D?


If your drill has the original keyless chuck on it, there are two plastic rings on the chuck. The outer ring should tighten and loosen by hand enough to hold the bit(s). The inner ring is to hold on to if the chuck gets overtightened. Chucks do wear and get corroded over time and can get locked in position. If you can't get it loose by hand, channel lock pliers can help. If the chuck is that bad you may need to replace it.

How to change bits


The drill uses a cordless chuck (part bits go into) you will need to hold the outside ring of the chuck and spin it to loosen the jaws on the bit. Then spin the chuck the opposite way to tighten

I borrowed a die hard 19.2 volt cordless drill from a friend, but I can't figure out how to change out the bit! Can you help me?! Thanks!


Hi Mary,

Welcome to fixya!

This drill has a keyless chuck. To remove the bit, just turn the chuck to the right (looking from the handle to the front) to open the jaws. To put in another bit, tighten the chuck to the left to close. You have to use both hands. You will see where the ridged portion of the chuck is in two sections. Hold on to the back section with your left hand to keep it from turning while you turn the front section with your right hand.

A lot of the time I just push the button to put the drill in reverse, hold on the front section of the chuck and turn it on. It will loosen by itself. Then when you put the new bit in, put it in forward and hold on to the chuck and press the switch. The bit will be in nice and tight.

Good luck, Mary.

Please place a vote when you accept this solution.
Thanks,
Handie Andie

A bit is stuck in my cordless Hitachi DS18DFL keyless drill chuck. How can I get it to release?


There are always 2 different rings to the chuck grip surface, you always hold the back one and turn the front one counter clockwise.
You should be able to do this by hand.
But if it is really tight for some reason, you could use a channel lock pliers or even a pipe wrench if you had to, but both might leave some marks.

I'm new to home improvement, and just bought my first cordless drill (Ryobi P204, 18-volt, 1/2"). How the heck do I insert the bit? The drill comes with two batteries, and a charger. There is an opening...


Like many drills these days, the P 204 has keyless chuck. In order to secure a bit, locate the forward/reverse switch (right above the trigger). Set it to the center of the three positions. This will lock the drill so that it cannot turn. Now turn the black portion at the front of the drill's nose (looking at the drill from the front, clockwise rotation will tighten the chuck and counterclockwise will loosen it) Adjust the chuck jaws so the bit you have chosen will fit without too much slop and then tighten the chuck until it holds the bit snugly and straight. Unlock the forward/reverse switch (push to the right to drill or insert screws) and you should be ready to go!

I can't get the drill bit out of My Makita 6333D cordless hand drill. I usually have no problem. I did tighten the chuck pretty tight, but now can't loosen it. Help.
