SOURCE: inserting new drill bit
Assuming that it is this drill:
You will need a chuck key - hopefully you have that with the drill. It's a little t-shaped bar with a cog on one end. You put it into the holes in the chuck (the part at the end which grps the bit) and turn anti-clockwise to open the jaws. Place a bit in the centre and then turn it clockwise to tighten. Tighten the bit using each of the three holes in the chuck and make sure you remove the chuck key before you use the drill - keep it safe!

Keyless chucks normally have a knurled ring at the base of the chuck that you hold in one hand while turning the large knurled taper with the other. If the chuck has been overtightened, and you cant open like this, try using two stilson wrenches (Pipe wrenches) one on each of these parts. Use a soft cloth in the jaws to avoid damaging the knurling. You can also try some Q20 or similar into the chuck to help lubricate it.

Black & Decker stopped doing battery packs for the older screwdrivers, like the 9018, some time ago so you cannot get them.
However you can still buy replacement NiCad, Sub C, 1.2v, tagged batteries that will do the job on the older 2.4v models as NiCad batteries for use in power tools are exempt under the European ban on importing NiCad batteries where used in power tools (Specific Exemption).
When you open up the screwdriver look at the positioning of the batteries and the tags/connectors and solder them together the same way.
So all you need is a soldering iron to join the centre tags together and then trim the end tags, top and bottom, to the width of the live/negative connectors and you have got a new battery pack.
It doesn't have to be pretty but after a small investment and a little effort it sure beats paying out £30 to £50 for a new screwdriver. I have done this for my older Black & Decker and Bosch screwdrivers which all work like new again.
