To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have:
Instructions for removing a keyed chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck.
2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck
Instructions for removing a keyless chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
2.) Insert the short end of a 1/4" or larger hex Allen wrench into the chuck and tighten. Facing the tool strike the long end of the hex wrench sharply counter clockwise as it is a standard right hand thread. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.

How do you remove the chuck from a 3/8 electric drill


Open up chuck for largest drill bit. Look inside and you will see a screw, remove the screw. Put a pair of vise grips on the stationary part of the drill chuck, which is the part of the chuck that the tightening tool goes into. The chuck is screwed onto left hand threads. Take a rubber mallet and hit the pair of vise grips clockwise sharply, to loosen chuck. You can now do what you planned on doing. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Screw driver bit stuck in chuck of impact driver.


a tough one If can't get hold of it you may be screwed LOL
getting that rammed in the chuck is very hard to get out even if can get a grip unfortunately you can't beat it out you would do more damage And no lubricate is going to help because it was tightened down. Hope someone can help you in this otherwise may have to replace the drill

Sd rotary hammer drill 110 volts bit brocken in chuck


Put some WD40 into chuck and wait a few minutes. Open the chuck as you would do when normally removing the drill while at the same smartly tapping the back of the drill.Alternatively try to grip the broken drill bit with a long nose pliers to extract it. A strong magnet might also pull the bit out.

Seized chuck.


I would continue to use the rust remover/penetrating oil products, put a pair of vice grips on the chuck grip and use a hammer to tap the grips. Hopefully this will free it up. It's not very elegant and you probably have already tried similar methods but it's the best idea that I have. Also you could soak the chuck portion in penetrating oil (chuck submerged only) overnight. Good luck!

Unable to grip the bit on the drill


If I understand this correctly, you are trying to have the chuck bite down on a bit. If the chuck does not tighten on the bit, your chuck is bad.

Chuck broken


Just happened to me. Oil the chuck and let it sit and soak. Very gently, put the dril into a vice to secure it. With a pair of adjustable pliers (somthing that you can get a good grip with) attempt to work the chuck free. It works but just be gentle so you dont break anything

Cannot remove drill bit from self locking chock


If you are having trouble turning the chuck to remove the drill bit just wrap a cloth around it a couple of times and use a pair of adjustable channel lock pliers to give yourself a mechanical advantage. If you have loosened the chuck but can't remove the bit just clamp onto the bit with a pair of vise grips and tap them a few times with a hammer while a friend holds the drill for you.
