Hi the 8406 was common for the intermediat gear to go have you yet stripped the gear box?

Turn on the drill if the chuck does not turn spin the chuck with a gloved hand TAKE CARE!! if the chuck catches grip one of the gears are gone.
Hope this helps let me know. Sean

Try using the low torque setting on the drill when reversing and something to assist you getting a better grip to hold the chuck from spinning when reversing. This may help.

If you have the 6408 as listed the spindle is threaded and you are correct there is no retaining screw. What you would need to do is find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity 3/8" and insert the shorter end in the chuck and tighten. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and position the long end at about a 30 degree angle in the counter clockwise position and strike it with a hammer, this might take a couple hits. If this is not a 6408 let me know and I will look at the tool for you and see what you got.

Try two channel lock pliers.
Hold the bit close the the base with one.
Take the other (cloth comes in handy here to prevent marring) and turn the chuck counter clockwise to release.
Alternative (little WD40 on the chuck)
One channel lock plier hold the chuck and put the drill in reverse.
The WD40 should allow the chuck to release easier.
