On the trigger switch, if you look really closely you will see that there are clips inside where the wires go in. If you use a jewelers flat screwdriver or other narrow flat instrument, you can push the clip back enough to release the wire.

If the replacement cord doesn't have clips on the ends of the wires, make sure that you tin (apply solder) to the ends of the new wires before inserting them into the trigger. This is needed to keep the individual strands from being pushed everywhere and causing a short, and stiffens the end, making it easier to insert.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Intermittent power when I pull trigger. I thought it was the brushes but I opened it up and there are no brushes. Can I assume it's the switch? Is it possible to replace it?

Hold the trigger down and wiggle the cord at the plug and at the tool, see if you can get it to take off by doing that. If you can, its a cord. The 0200-20 has brushes, unless this was posted in the wrong section, in which case I will need your model and serial number to help any further.

Need to know how to operate milwaukee screw gun?

I hope you're talking screw gun and not drill/driver. Screw gun used specifically to set screws in drywall. Make sure you have proper tip in gun (usually #2 phillips). There should be a rotating collar on the gun to control screw depth. The screw should only "dimple" the drywall. It should not tear the paper but should be below the plane of the drywall. To check depth run a putty knife over the screw heads. If you hear it hit, screws need to go a bit deeper. To work quickly; lock the trigger on and place the screw on the gun. Apply steady pressure and let the screw walk into the board until gun breaks free. Takes a bit of practice but pretty soon you'll be flying.

Faulty chuck and faulty speed switch?

The chuck issue you discribe is normal for those drills. The issue of the drill being tricky to shift from low to high, as a Milwaukee service center we have change many of the gearboxes in the 2601-22 drills, they are known for this issue. If you can still get it to change speeds by pushing the trigger a little bit its probably still OK (I know its a pain but alot of them do that) If it gets any worse or you can't shift it at all, the gearbox must be changed. Take it to a Milwaukee service center and they will change it out under warranty (5 yrs on that drill)

How to unlock the chuck

this how to get a chuck off a drill.look inside the chuck for a screw. it will be a left handed screw.once you get the screw out put the chuck in a vice . you will need to squeeze it very tight. then put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger.if i wont come off you will need to hit the chuck with a hammer while you are holding the trigger. if you have a bit stuck in the chuck and cant get it out put the chuck in the vice and hit it very hard with a hammer until the chuck falls apart.i work on drills every day ,this is the only way we have found that works
