Dewalt 18V XRP Clutch Slipping

I have a XRP that I have used for about 4 years.  It's a great drill, but while drilling through some metal the other day, the clutch just started slipping at extremely low torques.  Turning the clutch to the 'drill' setting, I can easily cause the clutch to slip by holding the chuck in my hand.  Is the clutch something that can be repaired in this drill?  And if that's the case, is it economical to do so or to just purchase a new one.
Thanks! Jeremiah

    I've expierienced the same problems while drilling and tapping steel, not on one drill but now two drill are shot. The sad thing is the one XRP was a mere 60 days old when I first expierienced the problem, these drills are not cheap to buy yet it seems they are poorly designed or manufactored. I give up I'm heading out rigt now to purchase a new drill, different maker though

    It is NOT economical to repair a poorly designed tool for a quarter of its expensive cost when it has not been abused. I loved this Dewalt 988 until the tranny pooped out in normal use. I thought this was a quality tool. Wrong!

Dewalt 18v xrp clutch slipping and electrical smoke smell in rear


Yes you can. Depending on the model of the tool it may not be the clutch causing your problem though. On some models the transmission is more likely the problem. Brushes create an ozone smell when the motor runs so that could be the smell. Does it run slow or get hot?

18V xrp Drill Help


The problem could be the brushes and if so it is be quit easy to replace them by pulling the drill apart and slipping the old ones out of there sleeves on the armature and slipping the new ones back in there place . you can buy these brushes at any good tool shop . all you will need is the model number of the drill which you can locate on the side case of your drill . hope this helps.
