Bosch GSB20-2RE drill

When I purchase my bosch drill the reverse trigger is back to front. When it is in reverse the drill is going clockwise and when reverse is off it is going anticlockwise the opposite to how is should be. I thought I would put up with it but it is annoying me. Can you tell me how to fix it please?

Remove 1014vsr bosch chuck

The greatest one that fit most chucks are 13mm but remember to remove the torxscrew (in clockwise direction) inside the chuck first and if you use a new chuck beware of to use some loctite on the screw.
The long side in a vice the short in the chuck and turn the left anticlockwise direction the L direction and pull short but fast the trigger and move the drill in the same direction turning the drill has priority to make doing this in a very short time. to not overcharge you tool.

How do I change the bit?

Ok this is a very general here is a VERY general answer.....turning the chuck (the piece then hold the drill bit) anti clockwise will open the teeth on the jaws of the drill, do this until the bit in there becomes loose, insert new bit and turn chuck clockwise to tighten.
Note: for a keyed chuck use the key provided (if u dont have one your local hardware can provide) for a hand chuck simply turn by hand, you can place drill in reverse and pull trigger for hard to start chucks, but please be VERY careful if u do this as it can and often will "bite" hurting your hand.............really you should ask someone that can do it right in front of you just to safe...please be careful and if in doubt go to your local hardware and ask them to show you.

My DR201 works great in the LEFT (clockwise) setting but NOT in the RIGHT (counter clockwise) position. It will occasionally work in the RIGHT position, but is intermittent. It has always functioned this...

All you have to do is take the model number and go to Sears to order a trigger switch. Take the cover off of the drill, take the wires off the old switch, and put the new one in. It is super simple.

How to change the chuck on 18 volt cordless drills

Set the drill to reverse. Hold the chuck, press the trigger and open the drills chuck to it wide open position. Now,, take the correct size allen wrench and insert it into the back of the chuck to remove the screw. Turn the screw clockwise to remove it. Notice I said clockwise, just the opposite of what you might think. Hold the chuck with your hand or a pair of large vise grips and press the trigger to unscrew the chuck from the drill. Rotate it counterclockwise to remove it from the drill. Reverse the procedure to install the new chuck.

Just purchased a bosch lithium ion cordless drill and notice a bright flash from the motor when i release the trigger is this normal?

it is usually a flash from the brushes that contact the armature. they may have not seated yet. there is the possibility that you have a problem and if it continues you should take it back or contact Bosch customer service.

How do I change the drill bits and then tighten so the bits stay in the drill?

The chuck will not turn. So to loosen just turn the black plastic counter clockwise. The chuck will loosen. Or you can hold the black part on the chuck tight and put the drill in reverse and slowly squeeze the trigger and the chuck will loosen also. Do the opposite to put a new bit in. Put the drill in forward and hold the black part of the chuck and squeeze the trigger with the bit in place and it will tighten down on the bit.

Need to replace the chuck on a Bosch 1194 VSR Model number 0 601 194 739

open the jaws of the chuck up all the way. There is a retaining screw at the bottom ( under where the drill bit would go). this screw is reverse thread. once the screw is out, get a 3/8 inch allen wrench. chuck the short end into the drill chuck. set the drill on a workbench with the chuck hanging off the edge a bit. Hit down on the allen wrench with a hammer ( counter clockwise) and the chuck will unscrew normal thread.

I have a Bosch PSR12 12V Cordless drill, but no instructions.

This drill has a keyless chuck. Put your bit in the chuck and hold the collar of the chuck while pressing the trigger in the forward position. To undo the chuck do this in reverse. You can also hand tighten the keyless chuck if you prefer. I have a 1/4' adapter that I keep in my drill so I can change bits quickly.

Drill bit Stuck (and then broke off)!

Keyless chucks have two parts (see pictures) when the drill is in operation both parts spin. Assuming you put the drill bit in and tightened the keyless chuck by hand, put on a work glove and grasp the part of the chuck at the front of the drill, grasp the other part and twist the front part anti clockwise.
If this does not work you can hold the front of the chuck and reverse the direction of the motor as if you were unscrewing something, then pull the trigger. If your hand does not grasp the chuck tight enough it will slip, hence the glove. If this does not work you may have to hold the front of the chuck in a vice or with caliper pliers and again the pull the trigger with the drill in reverse.
All this depends on what you used to put the drill bit in with your hand tight or held onto it with something else. Whatever was used should be enough to loosen the chuck
Hope this helps.
If it does let fix ya know.
