How to remove the chuck on a makita or other hand held electric cordless drill

usually with a special tool to hole the drive, if you look at the back, if the chuck, where the shaft mates you will see it has two flats or a profile on it, you make get a tool that can grip that and twist the chuck. If it hasn't you have to somehow jam the Motor, or the shaft, and again twist.

How do i remove the chuck from an dv 18 dl cordless drill

Most drills have the chuck secured with a screw. Twist the chuck to open jaws fully. Look into the chuck to find a screw head - it may be a straight, phillips, allen or other type blade to engage so that it may be loosened and removed.

If unable to remove the screw - it may have left-handed threads, so try turning the screw in the opposite direction.

I hope this helps!

How do I replace the blade?

Hi rq,

Look at the base of the blade, there is either a half twist quick disconnect or an allen screw.

Safety first: Unplug the saw.

If its the allen screw it will be located to one side of the blade. Just loosen it , pull the blade out.

The half twist ring doesa what its name implies. Twist it as far as you can (holding the saw with the bladed to the ground allows it to drop out) to free the blade.

Best reqards
