These are known for the spring in the nose (#12) to fail.
Using an o-ring pick or small screwdriver remove the hog ring on the end of the bit holder (#17).
Slide the washer, spring, and sleeve off (Be careful not to lose the small lock ball)
The spring that pushes the lock ball forward (#12) is usually the culprit.

SOURCE: tired old Dewalt dw056 impact driver

It's not a simple project, and should only be done by someone who is an electrical technician. But, you can save money by repairing your old battery pack yourself.

If you look at the battery pack it might be screwed together (my 18 volt impact driver is). Inside you will find a series of batteries linked together by tabs. You can go to Ebay and find a supplier of these batteries. After your batteries come, you can replace the batteries in the same configuration as they were before. Dispose of your old batteries in a manner suitable for hazardous materials.
This process will cost you less than buying a new battery pack.

You can also do this with computer batteries. I found one of my computers only had two dead batteries out of eight. The cost to replace them was about $15, a lot less than a replacement battery for around $100. Just make sure you use the same batteries to replace the others, and use all other precautions. Again, don't do this if you are not an electrical technician.

SOURCE: Impact not working correctly

The pinion on front of motor is slipping on motor shaft. It seems to be just a press fit. Seems like a flaw in design. I had same problem. I took the dw056 apart and took pinion off motor and pressed groves into motor shaft with side cutter pliers. then pounded pinion back onto motor shaft. We will see how long this lasts the motor shaft is a softer metal. I feel the motor shaft should be hardened steel like the pinion and have a shear pin or some sort of spline to attach to pinion. Would like Dewalt to offer fix for this as I only used dw056 a couple of times before I had problem.

Wondering if anyone knows whats wrong with my drill...when i press the trigger the drill works sometimes and not others


Open the tool and control the purple and brown colored wire where the slide contacts are fitted on the carbonbrush holder or the switch itself.

Do allways the Battery slide connector contacts control


Remove the two sliding contacts loose and squeeze the contacts slide a bit and then connect again.
If unsuccessful buy a new switch as well as battery connectors are checked.

The chuck on the dewalt impact driver does not hold the bit holder in


If you go to dewaltservicenet.com you can enter your model number to see the parts breakdown. It can be tricky to get the retainer clip off and on but the rebuild of the bit holder is easy other than that. The spring and the steel ball are all that usually need to be repalced. Hope that helps.

Repair intermittent switch on dewalt 20 Volt impact driver


Unfortunately Dewalt switches are solid state, meaning there is little to nothing you can do to fix them when they don't work. Occasionally spraying them with electronics cleaner and blowing them out with clean, dry air will make them work a little longer but more often than not you simply have to replace the switch. The part number for your driver is N084669. They cost between $65 and $75 so shop around or check with a local repair center.

I have a Hitachi WH 18 DFL cordless impact driver, which I love. I was doing a little bit of heavy drilling, and now the drill bit is stuck. The sleeve extends as if to release the bit, but the bit do


My guess is that the bit twisted a little in the bit holder so the steel ball is bound. If the collar moves you could try a slide puller on the bit and see if you can impact it out with the slide puller. Or you could take the bit holder apart. There is a retaining ring that holds it all together right on top. Pull that off and a washer, spring and the collar will come off. Becarefull to watch for the steel balls on the spindle. They WILL fall out! Now hopefully the bit will come out. If not it may need to be twisted in the oposite direction that it got stuck when you were using it to break it free. Hope that helps and good luck!

What's wrong with my screw gun when the bit keeps falling out when in use?


The bit holder resides in the clutch housing which has a collar with a ball bearing that the notch in the bit holder snaps into. It would seem that the ball bearing has slipped out of the cooler on the clutch housing, therefore nothing is locking it into placed. If you need a diagram, let me know.
