You have to put the longest allen wrench possible into the chuck and tighten it up. Next, hit the allen wrench to loosen the chuck. If the gears spin, hit it harder. You have to turn it counter clockwise, looking at the end of the chuck.

My chuck on my dewalt 18 volt comes undone in reverse its fine going forward what would be the problem


If you look at the end of the shaft on the drill after it unscrews, there will be a hole with threads inside--if not the screw may have broken off---your missing screw that holds the chuck on--it's a left handed threaded screw---it's head may be slotted--philips---torx---or allen---this is available at your Dewalt dealer or tool repair---all that needed is the size/model number of unit---screw the chuck back on tightly then open chuck jaws all the way then put the holding screw in---tighten it down---REMEMBER IT'S LEFT HANDED----GL

A dewalt dcd970 18v xrp and when i try to unscrew anything the bit comes loose. Can't figure out why?


check the inside of the chuck at the bottom(open the chuck to max). There should be small screw there with either a hex or a Phillips head. It is a left hand screw that locks the chuck in place and will not let it unscrew when you are removing parts.. If it is not there then you will have to get one from an old drill that is junk unless you can get one from an electrical appliance shop the repairs drills.

I HAVE A DEWALT 511 HAMMER DRILL AND I CAN'T REMOVE THE CHUCK. COULD PLEASE ADVISE ME ON WHAT TO DO.


Open the chuck fully and look inside, there should be a screw there that has to be removed to remove the chuck in view of the fact that it is a reversable drill and the chuck cannot be screwed off like a conventional inudirectional drill.

The chuck on my old dewalt reversing drill unscrews itself from the drill body when used in reverse mode.


You are more than likely missing the chuck retaining screw. If you give me the model number I will get you a part number and info on how to order. It is a left hand screw.

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

Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.


I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.

Dewalt dc920 repair instructions chuck


To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have:
Instructions for removing a keyed chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck.
2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck
Instructions for removing a keyless chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
2.) Insert the short end of a 1/4" or larger hex Allen wrench into the chuck and tighten. Facing the tool strike the long end of the hex wrench sharply counter clockwise as it is a standard right hand thread. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck
