Hi the 8406 was common for the intermediat gear to go have you yet stripped the gear box?
Quick test wear gloves to do this!
Turn on the drill if the chuck does not turn spin the chuck with a gloved hand TAKE CARE!! if the chuck catches grip one of the gears are gone.
Hope this helps let me know. Sean

Definitely a faulty clutch. Take it back to where you bought it (if it was recent), otherwise send it or go to a Makita Service Centre.

Hope that helps

My sds hammer drill gets stuck in really hard re-enforced concrete and carries on spinning as if it has a security clutch. trouble is itcome on much too often now. how can i adjust?

You listed an SDS (plus or max?) hammer drill (no model #) under Makita chain saws. I'm assuming you have a Makita drill. Most of them have torsion limiters that let the motor turn when the bit gets stuck so as to prevent major damage to the tool or user. If it has been going on for some time you may have worn out some of the internal parts. There are no adjustable parts to fix this, you have to replace the worn parts.

My Makita 3.0ah cordless drill does not drive anything when I put pressure on it. Would the clutch be worn and if so is it easy to repair?

Clutch is part of the transmission assy - yes it is about the only thing that it can be causing your issue. It is a fairly inexpensive and easy fix on Makita - the worst part is removing the chuck.

Makita 6349DWDE 18V Cordless Clutch

could be the clutch needs replaced, but I would check to make sure the high/low switch is fully engaged. Inside the clutch there is ring gear that could have the teeth rounded off I would go to and type in your model number for a breakdown so you can see what you are getting into, they are not that hard if you are mechanically inclined and just watch how you do it.

My Makita handrill is not working. It's just like loose,and the drill is not rotating anymore.

Your bearings in the Clutch have fallen out of place. 
Basically the tension screws pulling the clutch against the body.
Have became loose. If you Tighten them most likely wont fix it.
You should contact Makita. If you do open the drill. The Clutch assembly will be a task to reassemble. And the warranty might be voided.
