I need to remove the chuck on my Makita 6213D drill

I am trying to get the chuck off of my 6213D drill and it will not break loose. Is there a trick to it? I put a heavy allen wrench in it and gave it a sharp rap and it won't come apart.

    Yes I did have the retaining screw out but I didn't have it low speed. It did finally break loose and I got it off. THANK YOU for your feedback

    Did you remove the chuck retaining screw? Also make sure the drill is in the low speed and the collar is in the drill only. You might have to give it several hits but this should do it.

I am commenting so this will go out of the active section. When you put the chuck back on just reverse the procedure and hit it a couple times to seat the chuck and reinstall the screw.

Here is the manual for your drill. It does show you how to remove the angle attachment and installing a straight chuck. Maybe when you install the straight chuck it is not positioned correctly.

How to Remove Drill chuck from LxFD01 Makita drill

The screw in the bottom of the chuck is reverse threaded (left tight, right loose). It is also lock-tited so will be hard to remove. Make sure you have a screw driver well seated in the screw and turn it backwards (clockwise) to break it free. Once that is out, lock the short end of an allen wrench (at least 3/8" to 1/2") in the chuck. You'll have to lay the drill on a bench with the long end of the allen wrench hanging over the edge so you can hit it with a hammer hard enough to break the chuch free from the anvil. The chuck is threaded left loose, right tight so hit the wrench to turn the chuck counter clockwise. When you replace the new chuck use a small drop of lock-tite on the anvil threads and screw if it doesn't have some on it already.

How do you take the chuck off makita bhp 451

After removing the screw lock the short end of a 3/8" to 1/2" allen wrench in the chuck. Firmly hold the drill on the edge of a bench or lock it in a vice so you can strike the allen wrench hard and fast. The screw is reverse threaded but the chuck turns lefty loosy like a regular nut and bolt. It's the best and only way to break the chuck free.

How do you remove the ketless chuck from the 6213D drill

I think the general procedure is to chuck something in at at a right angle (an allen wrench, for instance) and then smack the free end with a hammer or mallet to break the threads loose. BUT, you have to know FOR CERTAIN if it is left-hand or right-hand threads.

Anybody can help?

They torque them on there so it won't fall off under hammer use, they never know what you will be doing so they don't take chances. You will have a tough time getting that thing off, why do you want it off anyway?

Can't get the keyless chuck off cordless Makita 6095D drill.

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
