If you back off the jaws(fully open) you should see a bolthead. Loosen this and the chuck should pop off with a few easy taps from a small hammer. If you dont see the bolthead, then all you have to do is turn the chuck to a fully open position and keep turning with force in the same direction and the chuck should unscrew. This type can be very difficult to remove. Exercise patience and it will come off. Thanks, Dana

Keyless chuck drill just spins


Some times the selector on top get gummed up with dust, it just needs cleaning. You were right to put it into 1st gear to remove the chuck with a big allen key, you get more resistance in the gears.

Makita 6408 drill motor. can't see how to replace the chuck.


If you have the 6408 as listed the spindle is threaded and you are correct there is no retaining screw. What you would need to do is find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity 3/8" and insert the shorter end in the chuck and tighten. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and position the long end at about a 30 degree angle in the counter clockwise position and strike it with a hammer, this might take a couple hits. If this is not a 6408 let me know and I will look at the tool for you and see what you got.

Chuck removal


First open the chuck jaws and remove the LH chuck retaining screw. After that find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck. Put the shorter end in the chuck and clamp down on it. Put chuck on a block of wood or workbench with the long end at about a 30 degree angle so you can hit it counterclockwise with a hammer. It might take a couple hits but it will come off.
