I just looked at some illustrations on ebay of Porter-cable 18 volt drills and they appear to be fairly standard cordless drill/drivers fitted with fairly standard keyless chucks that you get hold of with both hands and twist in opposite directions like you are giving it a Chinese burn. The part of the chuck nearest the bit twists anti-clockwise to loosen.

If you have an SDS drill for heavier duty jobs the chuck is semi-automatic in the drill bit just needs pushing into the chuck and clicks into place but the outer part of the chuck is pulled back in order to release the bit.

Fuse for Porter Cable PCMVC T2


It is not q cost effective repair. I understand your wanting to repair it. I have disposed of several 18V tools because of the cost of replacement batteries. I found it a better solution to watch for sale and buy a new tool with 2 batteries and charger. Good Luck.

Is there 2 type of battery chargers for ryobi one+ and lithium 18v one +


I just went through this with Porter Cable 18V but I can't say it is the same for Ryobi. On the PC, all 18V batteries are interchangable on the tools, but the charging needs are different. A dedicated NiCad charger can't shouldn't be used for liOn but the later chargers will work for either battery.
Ryobi offers an 18V upgrade:

How do you release the bits to change sizes


It is a keyless chuck. You should be able to grab the main body of the chuck and turn it to the left to release the bit. You can also hold the main body of the chuck and run the tool slowly in reverse whcih will also release the bit.

How do you change the drill bit for a Ryobi?


My husband explained this, via phone ..... made it simple....... grab the silver ring area beneath the black top area where the drill bit is located. Hold the silver area firmly, while you twist the black top. You will see the release, then remove drill bit. Laymen's terms, but it worked!!
