Grab the end of the chuck in one hand, and the outer ring of the chuck nearer the motor, and twist the chuck end. try both directions until it loosens.

If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

I have a Skill 717, too. It has a hex shank. Here are a couple places that I've located that carry (some) parts:

Welcome to fixya!
This drill has a keyless chuck. To remove the bit, just turn the chuck to the right (looking from the handle to the front) to open the jaws. To put in another bit, tighten the chuck to the left to close. You have to use both hands. You will see where the ridged portion of the chuck is in two sections. Hold on to the back section with your left hand to keep it from turning while you turn the front section with your right hand.
A lot of the time I just push the button to put the drill in reverse, hold on the front section of the chuck and turn it on. It will loosen by itself. Then when you put the new bit in, put it in forward and hold on to the chuck and press the switch. The bit will be in nice and tight.
