SOURCE: chuck change
After removing the screw and inserting the allen wrench shift the drill to the LOW position and turn the clutch to the drill only position. Use an allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity so that it will not flex when hitting it with a mallet. Sometimes they are stubborn because of the torque but this should work. Put the allen wrench at about a 30deg angle and hit the wrench. I support the chuck on a workbench or a block of wood will do fine. The chuck has standard threads.

SOURCE: chuck removal
First open the chuck jaws and remove the LH chuck retaining screw. After that find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck. Put the shorter end in the chuck and clamp down on it. Put chuck on a block of wood or workbench with the long end at about a 30 degree angle so you can hit it counterclockwise with a hammer. It might take a couple hits but it will come off.

Put the chuck key on and strike it with a hammer counter clockwise. the chuck key must be properly seated in the hole. Once the chuck is brokrn free, you can unscrew it my hand. Buy a new chuck an screw it in olace and againm strike the key but no as hard clockwise. It will self tighten more as it is used, Good Luck-Ned-

secure the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck, making sure it is as tight as possoble. Useing a wood or hard rubber mallet strick the long end of the allen wrench so it turns counter-clockwise. This should loosen the chuck from the spindle enough that you can unscrew it by hand.

If the chuck itself slips, you can tear down the outer layers (yes it is a bit brutal)
of the chuck until you reach the inner metal core. You can then try several things;
1 loosen it with a pipe wrench, provided you can get a grip on the axle of the chuck to counter the torque
2 Weld an allen key to the metal core of the chuck and use a firm rapid blow by a hammer to rotate it counterclockwise
3 Dismantle the final shaft with the chuck core, and set it in a vise with aluminium plates to protect it, while you turn the chuck with a wrench or pliers.
4.If there is no senter lock screw inside the bottom of the chuck it may be fitted with a thread locking compound. It will loosen easilier if heated with a heat gun or moderate gas heat.Only supply just enough heat to loosen it, or the hardening of the steel may be compromised.
