Open the chuck jaws and you will see a screw in the center of chuck, it is left hand thread. remove it and use a large bent handle allen wrench putting the short portion in the jaws and tightening. Shift the drill to the low position and have the clutch in the drill only position. place the handle of the wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counterclockwise. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and hit it, this might take a couple times but it will come off. Let me know if you still need help

    If you have left handed threads and you try to loosen it by striking it going counter-clockwise you will be tightening it! You must go the opposite way, which is clock wise to loosen the fitting.

I HAVE A DEWALT 511 HAMMER DRILL AND I CAN'T REMOVE THE CHUCK. COULD PLEASE ADVISE ME ON WHAT TO DO.


Open the chuck fully and look inside, there should be a screw there that has to be removed to remove the chuck in view of the fact that it is a reversable drill and the chuck cannot be screwed off like a conventional inudirectional drill.

How can i remove the chuck from my cordless dewalt power drill


Hello, W/D here.

To remove your chuck, open the jaws of the chuck fully, but don't open them so tight that they lock in the open position. Remove the screw inside the chuck. Spray the inside of the chuck with penetrating oil. Tap around the edge of the chuck, while pulling it away from the motor.
It should come right off, with a little effort.

Best regards, --W/D--

The dc925 and the current model dcd950 along with several other models of Dewalt 's line of cordless hammer drills DO NOT have a screw inside removal requires a CHUCK REMOVAL FIXTURE part #
233804-40 also you can't use a generic replacement chuck. As of 2/2/2010 the prices on the Dewaltservicenet web site are $72.74 for
the tool and $69.70 for the chuck, part # 330075-90.

Got a broken drill chuck i cant get off (Dewalt)


first remove the chuck retaining screw LH thread, next shift the tool to the drill only position and the low side. Find a bent handle allen wrench and insert the short piece into the chuck and clamp down, place the chuck with the long portion at about a 30 degree so you can strike it counter clockwise, usually a block of wood or work bench will do and then get a hammer and safety glasses and hit it, it might take a couple times but it will come off

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.

REMOVE CHUCK


The only way is with a special chuk key , and is not available to customers, if you still want to replace by yourself, you can by the whole gear case cover assemble that cames with the new chuck, but is is expensive.

Problem with the chuck


Had the same problem on mine. Remove the chuck, then remove the snap ring on the back of the chuck( carefull, the housing will fall out once the ring is removed), on the side of the chuck you'll find a cam and small odd shaped spring held in by two cylender pins, on mine the spring had a gap in it and I just spread the gap to about twice the size in was and put everything back together and it has worked fine ever sence. Hope it works for you.
