After removing the screw and inserting the allen wrench shift the drill to the LOW position and turn the clutch to the drill only position. Use an allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity so that it will not flex when hitting it with a mallet. Sometimes they are stubborn because of the torque but this should work. Put the allen wrench at about a 30deg angle and hit the wrench. I support the chuck on a workbench or a block of wood will do fine. The chuck has standard threads.

SOURCE: my chuck is broke , on my 18v makita cordless

Put the chuck key on and strike it with a hammer counter clockwise. the chuck key must be properly seated in the hole. Once the chuck is brokrn free, you can unscrew it my hand. Buy a new chuck an screw it in olace and againm strike the key but no as hard clockwise. It will self tighten more as it is used, Good Luck-Ned-

How do you put the black chuck cover back on


It sounds as thought you have a keyless chuck on your drill. The cover is not meant to come off. You will have to replace the chuck.

The BTD 140 only has a sleve, spring, washer, clip and 2 balls. If you need to replace the bit holder then it is part of the shaft (324432-0) that comes from inside the gearbox.Cover unscrews from the body.

Keyless chuck


You will find a screw inside the chuck that needs to come out first of all but beware that it will be a reverse thread. This is to stop it loosening whilst in use. then you will need to unscrew the chuck but it isn't easy as you have to hold the shaft that the chuck is attatched to. You can sometimes take the chuck off by holding it and pulling the trigger while in reverse. (but they can be stuck fast).

Chuck won't tighten


The chuck is held onto the drive shaft via screw located inside the chuck. The screw has reverse threads and sometimes the screw gets loose restrictinhg the chuck tightening. Turn the chuck to loosen and tighten the screw as though you were removing a normal screw. Good luck
