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).

How to remove a keyless chuck from bdf452

If the head of the screw is stripped out to much for a driver to grip and remove it you have two options.
1. Use another drill to drill in the center of the screw with a bit just big enough to remove the head. With the head of the screw off, the chuck can be removed from the spindle. There should be enough of the screw remainin in the spindle that you can grip it with vice grips and remove it.
2. Using a metal cutting wheel on a grinder, you have to cut the end of the chuck off, aiming to cut just under the head of the set screw so you don't damage the spindle. After cutting, let things cool off before trying to remove the rest of the chuck and screw from the spindle.

I have a Black & Decker 18V cordless drill with keyless chuck. The spot where the drill bit fits is in the open position stuck and won't turn in either position. What am I missing how to unlock it?

Look at the three jaws in the chuck,if on is further out than the others the you need to tap ti back into place with a small punch and a hammer.If this does not work then you need to replace the chuck,remove the screw at the bottom of the chuck[where you put the bit],then you will need to to clamp vise grip on the chuck and with it pointed away from you hit the vise grips with a hammer with a sharp blow downward and it should come off.Hope this helps.
