First shift the drill to the drill only position and the gear selector to the low position, remove the chuck retaining screw LH thread, find a bent handle allen wrench about the chuck capacity and lock in the jaws of the chuck, put the chuck on a block of wood at about a 30 degree angle to hit the long portion counter clockwise and strike it with a hammer, it might take a couple hits but it will come off. I misread the header last time.

How do I get the chuck off of my DeWalt DW 117 1/2" VSR Drill Serial #1229?


Open the chuck jaws and look down inside the chuck. You will see a screw head that is holding the chuck to the drill. Once you remove the screw, the chuck should pull off easily.

How do yo;u remove the chuck?


You don't say which drill you have. Normally just remove the left hand screw from inside the chuck and knock the chuck off using the chuck key in an anti clockwise direction.

How can i remove the chuck from my cordless dewalt power drill


Hello, W/D here.

To remove your chuck, open the jaws of the chuck fully, but don't open them so tight that they lock in the open position. Remove the screw inside the chuck. Spray the inside of the chuck with penetrating oil. Tap around the edge of the chuck, while pulling it away from the motor.
It should come right off, with a little effort.

Best regards, --W/D--

Can the chuck be replaced on a 18v dewalt?


Hello russ_rome,

Here is the solution from the Dewalt website.

Firstly check to see if the chuck is secured with a screw, if you have a screw follow steps 1-3 else follow steps 2-3.

Step 1: Screw will have a left-hand thread and must be turned clockwise to undo it.

Step 2: Once the screw has been removed place a suitable Allen Key in the chuck and tighten the jaws.

Step 3: You should then tap the end of the Allen Key to ease the chuck off (the chuck has a conventional thread so unscrew it in an anti-clockwise direction).

Some of our high spec cordless drills will need to be serviced need to be taken to your nearest service centre to have a new chuck fitted.

How to remove the chuck?


open the chuck fully and it shoudl have a screw inside. Unscrew it, but be carefull, these screws are usually reversed - to uncsrew, rotate it clockwise. Once done, put allen key into chuck (short side in), fasten the chuck to hold allen key well and hit the key with hammer - counterclockwise direction. You might want to verify this procedure with someone else as I have no experience with Dewalt, but this way it works for Makita, Metabo, Narex, ... then why not for Dewalt? Juraj

How i remove a dewalt drill chuck Model dc988


put the drill in speed setting 1 before you continue~!

Step 1. This step loosens the screw inside the chuck. Open the chuck all the way — if you see a screw inside, it’ll need to come out before you can remove the chuck. If there’s no screw inside, you can skip steps one and two.

Step 2. If there’s a screw inside the chuck, typically the threading will be left-handed, so turn it clockwise to remove it. Be careful, and use the right size screwdriver — you don’t want to strip the screw.
step-2.gif Step 3. Insert the largest hex key that you have into the chuck, short-side-in, and tighten the chuck. Tap the hex key sharply in a counterclockwise direction to loosen the chuck. Now you can remove it by hand.
step-3.gif This won’t work for every consumer drill ever made, but pretty close. Most drills will match one of two common chuck-threading standards: 3/8′-24 threaded mount for 3/8′-capacity drill chucks, and 1/2′-20 threaded mount for 1/2′-capacity drill chucks — but on some drills just the opposite may occur. To be safe, always check the thread count before you buy a replacement drill chuck.

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.
