Question about Makita 12V Cordless Impact Driver - 6980FDWDE
The drill stopped working, dead. The batteries hold a charge fine. I tried getting the case apart to look for something loose or disconnected, and couldn't get the chuck off. Rather than a screw head inside the chuck, there is some other kind of head I can't budge with an allen wrench. What to do?
If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck
