SOURCE: How to remove a chuck from a DeWalt hand drill

Open chuck all the way (like for a large drill bit). There should be a set screw at the bottom (where you would put a drill bit). Don't turn too hard - it may be a left handed screw (I don't remember if it is a lefty for sure but try gently each way then with a bit more force each way until it moves).

Good luck.

Brushes over time will wear down so comparing from the old to new will not look the same. If 18V brushes fit into the your drill then it should be fine.

How to change brushes on a dc970

I don't think the motor is serviceable that way. At
DeWALT DC970 Parts List and Diagram eReplacementParts com you can find the motor and pinion for $35 plus shipping and then get the entire drill working again. Had the same problem with one of mine and it was an easy fix.

Dewalt 18vxrp stopped working. Any suggestions???

Knock the back end against something. Or shake the drill and if it sputters, it could be a loose wire, or more likely worn brushes. If that doesn't do anything, open the case and check with a volt meter if you are getting any current past the switch (ie hold the terminals from the volt meter onto the brushes or onto the leads coming out of the top of the switch.)

If you get a reading of 19V to a couple volts less, then you're switch is most likely okay. Check for worn brushes. Or a motor replacement might be necessary. (Yes it's easy to do)

How do i change the bushes on my dewalt 18 volt battery drill

The brush holders are located at the back end of the motor. Depending on which model you have, you may have to only remove the end cap at the back of the motor to get access to the brush/holder set. Or you may have to split the entire clamshell to get at them. Be careful if you have to remove the transmission, there are a lot of small parts that can fall out and they all have to go back in correctly to make it work.

The chuck is stuck on 18 volt dewalt drill

It is not the chuck that is stuck, it is probably the armature. Probably a problem with the brushes. Since it is so easy I would try first unscrewing the caps and pulling the brushes out to see if things spin then. If the brush will not come out then it is probably jambed and you would have to take the drill apart. If you take the brushes out and still have a problem, at least one reasonable but simply checked problem is eliminated.
