I just repaired mine by removing the 4 screws that hold the clutch and transmission onto the body of the drill. Next, remove the front section of the drill and then the transmission. on the back of the transmission assembly (toward the motor, you should see a thin plate that holds the gears from falling out. Remove the plate by sliding it counter-clockwise. next, remove the large out gear to expose the bootom end of the spring loaded pin you might have noticed sticking out of the front of the transmission. carefully remove the pin and the spring,(it shoul come out in 3 pieces). Next you will need to make a shim, or spacer ( I used a wire about the same thickness as the spring) and wrap it around the pin so that the spring is spaced out just a coil or 2. next you should carefully put back together your drill and you clutch will be working much better than when you took it apart, if not like it should when it was new.
Hope this helps.... It sure made mine work great.

    Great advice, I took apart my whole gear assembly cleaned, and re-greased as well! When packing out the spring be careful not to over do it as I have. You will not be able to select torc settings! It doesn't bother me as I have an impact driver and sds, so all my drill gets used for now is whole saws and spade bits.

    Worked like a charm. Sort of at least. After spacing I couldn't get the pin to go in far enough to allow me to put it back together. Took the spacer off however and the drill worked like new again. Maybe too much of the spring had worked over the little catch on the pin and just needed to be stretched back out

Rotate the black collar until it is lined up with the drill bit sign. If you are on a low number it will always clutch.

My Dewalt DC925 works well but the torque settings don't seem to be working.when i am drilling screws the drill will just drill until i release the this a clutch problem?. Many thanks.

Try to put it on the lowest torque and if it slips when wanted, then add a little more torque and check to make sure it slips. Continue at each torque setting and usually works again at full torque. Usually happens when left on the same torque all the time. This kind of resets it.

I have a Dewalt DCD770KL 18v LiOn drill/hammerdrill. I did not use it much for drilling into concrete before, but recently, I needed to mount something to the ground. I used the hammerdrill setting and...

Please visit a qualified technician. Because it's also my personal experienced with hammer drill that inside a small ball bearing with tiny spring as a tosser for shifting always been stocked up by sticky or hardening grease which you need to loosen. If not kindly check it up for something that is blocking the shift. Thanks for asking.

Makita lxt 452 seems to have lost some speed on the 2 setting torque is fine on the lower setting had it about 2 and a half years using it for work.

If you have been using the same setting for a long time you would have worn out the friction plates in the gear box. Its like a clutch plates of a car.. You can replace the whole gear box assembly by purchasing the same from their web site.

Moderrate resistance stops the drill from driving and to scream

The grinding you're hearing is the normal sound for the clutch. There's a ring with numbers on it the higer the setting the more torque it'll take for the clutch to slip. Many of the newer drill & drivers have a drill setting at the high end of the clutch settings others have a separate drill & driver setting. This site will give you most everything you need.

Get a torx bit, either 10 0r 15 & slowly undo screws about one third. There should be 4 of them. When screws are loose they will take pressure off selector & you should be able to free it up.
