Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Look at this link

http://home.comcast.net/~jaswensen/machines/drill/drill.html (I verified that the link works.)

paying attention to the slider (Item 37) in the picture just a bit more than 50% down the page. Yuo will have to slide the slider in place and then use an Allen Wrench to remove the old chuck.

Sometimes you have to use a hammer and a chisel on the OLD chuck to turn it enough to loosen.
To me the chisel is the tool of last resort but you can use it to rotate the old head CCW. The hard part is preventing the motor from rotating while you use the chisel.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hi, if your chuck is jammed and cant put an allen key in it to tighten it, and then to hit it sharp with a hammer anti clock wise, the only way I found to do it sucessfully is to carfeully cut it away using an angel grinder! but take great care not to grind the thread on the drill! i have done this twice, both with success!

How to Remove Drill chuck from LxFD01 Makita drill


The screw in the bottom of the chuck is reverse threaded (left tight, right loose). It is also lock-tited so will be hard to remove. Make sure you have a screw driver well seated in the screw and turn it backwards (clockwise) to break it free. Once that is out, lock the short end of an allen wrench (at least 3/8" to 1/2") in the chuck. You'll have to lay the drill on a bench with the long end of the allen wrench hanging over the edge so you can hit it with a hammer hard enough to break the chuch free from the anvil. The chuck is threaded left loose, right tight so hit the wrench to turn the chuck counter clockwise. When you replace the new chuck use a small drop of lock-tite on the anvil threads and screw if it doesn't have some on it already.

How do i remove the chuck from a Makita 8391D


I think you will find that if you open the chuck fully you will see a cross head screw inside the chuck which you need to undo before removing the chuck. this secure the chuck from unscrewing while being used in reverse to undo screws. Once this screw is out a spanner is used at the base of the chuck to unscrew it from the shaft. this may need a short sharpe shock to get it to move.

Hi i broke the chuck on my 1/2 makita cordless


Put the biggest hex key you have in the chuck and tighten it then hit it clockwise with the spindle lock engaged a couple of times. The screw in the chuck will then undo clockwise and the chuck can be undone after by putting the allen key back in and unscrewing it anti-clockwise maybe with a light tap from a mallet.
Hope this helps

My chuck is broke , on my 18v makita cordless drill , how do i fix it


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 i remove the chuck from the Makita 12v 6227D


There is a left handed screw down at the bottom of the chuck. I believe it is a flathead screw. You need to make sure you are in the lowest gear and turn that screw clockwise. It seems odd, but turning to the right will loosen the chuck screw. Once the chuck screw is removed then you need to remove the chuck from the spindle. Remove the chuck like a regular screw. It has regular threads and should be removed by turning it counterclockwise. Good luck

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.)
