Question about Dewalt DW056 18 Volt Cordless Impact Driver - 1/4" Drive Hex Shank (Battery Charger and Case Not Included) - Tool Only
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND STILL DO FROM TIME TO TIME. I USE THE PROPPER BITS, SO THAT ISNT THE PROBLEM.
WHAT WORKS IN GETTING THEM OUT... JUST TAP THE BIT INTO THE CHUCK AND THEN PULL THE QUICK RELEASE AND THE BIT COMES RIGHT OUT. THE BIT JUST GETS INTO A BIND AND TAPPING THE END FREES IT UP

I saw this on another post, but I can't find it any more.
Same thing happened to me, in a fit of impatience I used a short phillips hex bit and it pushed in too far and got stuck. No amount of pulling will get it out. Tried diagonals, vise, needlenose, etc. Also tried taking it apart but was stymied by the retaining ring.
What worked: Large flat-balde screwdriver prying the chuck collar up, while simultaneously pulling on the bit with a sharp diagnonal pliers. Popped right out.

I have two suggestions regarding the chuck stuck:
First I was told by a repair place to lube the quick chuck frequently as they quickly oxidize..
Second, after one of my snap chucks got too badly worn, I found a repair place that would take my 80 bucks to fix..ah no. Ereplacementparts.com had all the parts for 6.58 and the driver is very easy to repair yourself. The motor is also under 40 bucks if your run them everyday like I do...

I have the deckmate bit jammed in mine and my friends. He got hs bit out using 2 people one guy used a pair of sharp diagonals and held them tight on the bit and the other pushed the chuck out. They basically played tug a war and it popped out. On mine I removed the chuck by pushing in the washer on the end and using a small screwdriver to remove the retaining ring so that I could get the ball out. My bit was still jammed good so I ended up welding a rod to the end of the bit and putting that in a vise and tapping on the chuck with a hammer . You need to use an extention with a slot cut in it for proper use. Good Luck

Yeah that happened to me, I took it in for warranty and they hounored it, basically what happens is the bit gets pushed back past the ball bearing that holds it in in the first place, so the only way to get it out is to take the tool into a place and have them dissassemble the chuck and remove the bit, if you pull on on or try to pry it out yourself you risk damaging the inside components,

You are not suppose to insert the tiny bit directly to the tool.
all you need is a 2" magnetic bit holder.

I have a thought. How about drilling a small hole from the back(motor side) of the driver assembly and then push out the bit with a small punch? I have considered this, but I don't know yet if the driver is hardened. If this works, the problem should be solved for all users. Then the remaining isue is finding the proper grease for reassembly
