If the screw is out. all you have to do is lay down the drill at the edge of the table & use pipe wrench or plumber wrench & turn counter clockwise.

Hi Paul with the screw out you will have to lock the short end off a sturdy allen key in the jaws off the chuck then sellect first gear on the drill then with a hammer hit the long side off the allen key so that the chuck unscrews normal thread (anti clockwise) the shock off the hit will free the chuck.
Hope this helps.
Sean.

How to change the chuck on 18 volt cordless drills


Set the drill to reverse. Hold the chuck, press the trigger and open the drills chuck to it wide open position. Now,, take the correct size allen wrench and insert it into the back of the chuck to remove the screw. Turn the screw clockwise to remove it. Notice I said clockwise, just the opposite of what you might think. Hold the chuck with your hand or a pair of large vise grips and press the trigger to unscrew the chuck from the drill. Rotate it counterclockwise to remove it from the drill. Reverse the procedure to install the new chuck.

My chuck releases when i use it in reverse.


does the chuck unscrew?? If so what you need to do is tighten the chuck again and look for the chuck retaining screw that locks it into place, you should be able to buy one at any local tool repair center. they are left hand thread. if the jaws are releasing then the chuck might have to be replaced. Let me know if I misunderstood the problem and I will try again.

Got a broken drill chuck i cant get off (Dewalt)


first remove the chuck retaining screw LH thread, next shift the tool to the drill only position and the low side. Find a bent handle allen wrench and insert the short piece into the chuck and clamp down, place the chuck with the long portion at about a 30 degree so you can strike it counter clockwise, usually a block of wood or work bench will do and then get a hammer and safety glasses and hit it, it might take a couple times but it will come off

How to remove dw 988 chuck


Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Lemme know. Please rate me

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!

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.
