They are not, you need to buy a new chuck. The tolerance is so close on the collar that you can't repair it. On some of the older keyed chucks you could but the jaws cost about as much as a new one.

How to remove keyless chuck


open the chuck jaws right up
down the center of the chuck you will see either a philips screw head or a hex head for allen key
hold the shaft at the base of the chuck to stop it from turning and undo the screw in the chuck in a right hand direction ( it is a left hand thread) when you have that out , still holding the shaft turn the chuck in the left hand direction ( normal thread ) and screw the chuck off
to assist in undoing the chuck do it up so that the jaws come out a bit
place something between the 3 jaws to act as a lever or use an allen key in the chuck done it tight and use that as a lever to undo the chuck
the secret is the lh thread screw in side the chuck which stops it from undoing when the drill is in reverse

Mybrand new RZ20 keyless chuck will not close around a bit.


If a large enough drill bit is inserted too far so it bottoms in the chuck, the jaws run into the bottomed shank and will not close beyond a certain point due to the interference. If you hold the drill bit out about 1/2 inch from the bottom, the jaws should close on the bit. I assume you have tested the chuck without a bit to verify they can close.

My AEG 630 watt drill SBE630RX. The keyless chuck is seized and will not release drill bit. This is used on a regular basis if this is any help. Many thanks. Trev


The cover on the chuck must be removed by using a punch, tapping around the drill side. this will pop off the cover exposing the jaw's. then use a channel lock and or bench vice on wheel that surround's jaw's. if the chuck is no good it may have a left hand screw in the bore that must be removed to take chuck off.

Relace keyless chuck


It really depends on the model. Here is a general description of how to remove most regular keyed and keyless chucks from corded and cordless drills:
Some chucks have a Left Handed screw that secures them to the spindle so they do not come loose. You can look into the chuck with a flashlight and see if there is a chuck screw. (It may be a torx head, flat head, or philips head) You will need to remove this screw first before doing anything else. Sometimes there is loc-tite applied to the screw so it may be stubborn and sometimes you will strip the screw head. Remeber that the old saying lefty-loosey, righty-tighty does not apply here. Left is actually tightening a left hand thread, so you want to turn it right to loosen. I know, it will feel weird but thats the way to loosen it. You may have to apply some heat to the screw in order to get that loc-tite to break. A pencil torch works great. If you strip the head out you will have to use a drill press and drill the screw head off.
After removing the screw you can remove the chuck.
To remove the chuck, the easiest way is to use a hex socket bit and an impact wrench. Put the hex bit in the chuck, and depending on the condition of the jaws, tighten the jaws as much as possible to the hex bit. Put the impact in reverse and bump it until the chuck is loosened. If you do not have access to an impact wrench you will need to put a hex key with a long arm into the chuck and tighten it then place the drill on the edge of your bench and give it a good whack with a 3lb hammer. It may not come off immediately so you may have to reset and do this a couple of times. Not the most effective way to remove a chuck, especially if one of the jaws is missing, but that is what most manufacturers tell you to do. I myself cut the collar off with a die grinder and then use a pipe wrench on the body of the chuck applying constant pressure while heating the chuck body with a torch. Works every time. Heat is our friend on stubborn chucks. Good luck, any questions please post.

Keyless chuck grip is stripped inside and the chuck is stuck in a tightened position. Can I get a replacement chuck grip and how do I get the chuck assembly off the drill, if that's necessary ?


second question first. No you cant just buy the grip, you have to buy a replacement chuck, shop around for best price, second you have to get the jaws opened up to remove, couple different ways, but first go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number for a parts explosion. Next if the grip is damaged can you put a pair of pliers on it and turn the collar to loosen it? the jaws have to be retracted to remove the chuck screw (LH threads), what you need to do now is put the drill in the drill only position and the tool in low range. Find a bent handle allen wrench and lock in the jaws, put the chuck on a bench or block of wood and wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counter clockwise, you might have to hit a couple time but this will work. Let me know if I can help further.

Drill chuck swap


1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.
