The other day I was using the drill to back off some Wheel lugnuts, they had already been loosend with the big rachet. the was a bang inside the drill and now under load the chuck "unscrews" when in reverse. What did I break and can I repair it?

Re: DeWalt 12V cordless the chuck mow backs out under...
That depends take the chuck off and see if you can see a part of a screw in the spindle. If so try and turning it with a small pick to remove it. It sounds like all you possibly broke was the chuck retaining screw. You can go to a repair center and pick one up relatively cheap or go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number to look at a breakdown for this part. Let me know if anything different, I take it also that the tool runs and sounds OK otherwise?

if it is a keyless chuck soak the inside of the chuck with oil. charge the battery so you have max power. put a cloth around the chuck and use a pair of channel locks to hold the chuck and put the drill in reverse. good luck
If you open the chuck all the way you will see a Allen wrench screw down the throat. If you can get that off you will beable to pull the hole chuck off. Turn the chuck so you can see the bottom and you should see the cruves where you can slide it back in.
open the chuck fully and it shoudl have a screw inside. Unscrew it, but be carefull, these screws are usually reversed - to uncsrew, rotate it clockwise. Once done, put allen key into chuck (short side in), fasten the chuck to hold allen key well and hit the key with hammer - counterclockwise direction. You might want to verify this procedure with someone else as I have no experience with Dewalt, but this way it works for Makita, Metabo, Narex, ... then why not for Dewalt?
Hi there, Remove the battery and sometimes the screws on the drill casing are a torx instead of phillips so you will need a set of torx screwdrivers. Once you have removed the screws from the casing be very carefull when pulling the two casings apart, try to leave the chuck, motor and switch assembly in one half of the casing as it makes it much easier when trying to put it back together.
I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.
this 2 chuck are 3/8 jaw opening,double sleeve u can hold the chuck will opening it at the sametime.the sinlge sleeve u have to runs the drill while running slow rev/for to remove the bit etc.
i prefer metal sleeve.
