SOURCE: drill chuck removal

The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

SOURCE: Having problem to remove chuck to replace it on dewalt dc988 18v

Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

Top chuck just clicks but won't change bit size?


It sounds as though you will have to replace the chuck. Remove the screw (l/h tread) from inside the chuck first before removing it.

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.

My keyless chuck is open and will not close in order for removal. Drill motor works fine. Manual states that hex key opens it for removal but it must be closed first in order for the key to work. I cannot...


Every chuck I have changed on a portable drill has a hex screw in the back/bottom and you can only get at it if the chuck is open. look down in and see if there is a hex screw. It very well could be reverse threaded. This holds the chuck on/ sometimes in conjunction with threads on the chuck itself. So you may need to unscrew the chuck after you remove the hex screw. Again this may be reverse threaded (lefty-tighty rightly-loosy)Now I can no say for certain that this is the case with your chuck.

How do you get the chuck off


Most drills have a screw inside of the chuck, likely tork or allen. They can be tricky to remove. Need to get the right size and type (torx or allen) wrench, preferably an L shape. Insert the wrench in the screw. Tap it with a mallet to break it loose. After that, the chuck in hand, operate the drill to loosen the chuck from the shaft. They are usually right handed thread.

How do you change the steering wheel on the bf falcon without setting the airbag off?


First disconnect the battery positive lead. Then you will have to remove the lower steering column shroud - philips screwdriver. Then you will see two tork screws behind the steering wheel. Remove these and the airbag will come out. Disconnect the three elect' plugs and the airbag will come free. Wheel centre bolt is also a tork bolt but I used an imperial allen key (5/16 if I remember correctly) to loosen it but didn't take it right out. Then a wheel puller with the centre screw resting against the tok bolt head to loosen the wheel, (two metric bolts screw into the wheel hub) remove the puller, remove the tork bolt and the wheel should come off easy. Good luck.

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.
