If the drill is not too old, I would take it to your nearest factory dewalt repair shop. they have a good warranty on their items. If it is older you probably need to replace the chuck itself. You need to remove the plastic to get the chuck open and then there is a screw down inside the chuck that needs removed. The chuck should come right off and just reverse the process to install the new one.

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.

I suggest that you do not proceed, Keyless chucks can be problematic especially if dust /debris from material being drilled gets into the chuck. I have had to remove the Keyless chuck from my B&D drill and replace it with a keyed chuck- no problems since.

How can I replace the keyless chuck on my Dewalt DWD215G?


Open the chuck wide open. In the center is a retaining screw, they usually have left hand threads. Remove the screw. Take an allen wrench1/4" to 3/8" in size and fasten the short side tightly in the chuck. The chucks are usually right hand thread, so take a small hammer and strike the allen wrench to turn the chuck to the left to loosen it. Once you have the chuck off, verify the thread size of the drill motor shaft, then go to McMaster-Carr and choose the one you need.

Relace keyless chuck


It really depends on the model. Here is a general description of how to remove most regular keyed and keyless chucks from corded and cordless drills:
Some chucks have a Left Handed screw that secures them to the spindle so they do not come loose. You can look into the chuck with a flashlight and see if there is a chuck screw. (It may be a torx head, flat head, or philips head) You will need to remove this screw first before doing anything else. Sometimes there is loc-tite applied to the screw so it may be stubborn and sometimes you will strip the screw head. Remeber that the old saying lefty-loosey, righty-tighty does not apply here. Left is actually tightening a left hand thread, so you want to turn it right to loosen. I know, it will feel weird but thats the way to loosen it. You may have to apply some heat to the screw in order to get that loc-tite to break. A pencil torch works great. If you strip the head out you will have to use a drill press and drill the screw head off.
After removing the screw you can remove the chuck.
To remove the chuck, the easiest way is to use a hex socket bit and an impact wrench. Put the hex bit in the chuck, and depending on the condition of the jaws, tighten the jaws as much as possible to the hex bit. Put the impact in reverse and bump it until the chuck is loosened. If you do not have access to an impact wrench you will need to put a hex key with a long arm into the chuck and tighten it then place the drill on the edge of your bench and give it a good whack with a 3lb hammer. It may not come off immediately so you may have to reset and do this a couple of times. Not the most effective way to remove a chuck, especially if one of the jaws is missing, but that is what most manufacturers tell you to do. I myself cut the collar off with a die grinder and then use a pipe wrench on the body of the chuck applying constant pressure while heating the chuck body with a torch. Works every time. Heat is our friend on stubborn chucks. Good luck, any questions please post.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.


The screw is a LEFT HAND THREAD and also is LIKELY a Metric size!

Make sure you use a Metric Allen wrench.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.


Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".
These chuck screws are tight. Hammer clockwise until screw brakes loose.Open chuck completely and remove screw.Chuck is threaded to spindle shaft . Place allen wrench with long end facing out of tool in chuck and tighten chuck securely. With hammer tap allen wrench sharply counter clockwise ( normal thread.)

Drill chuck swap


1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.
