Bosch GSB20-2RE drill

When I purchase my bosch drill the reverse trigger is back to front. When it is in reverse the drill is going clockwise and when reverse is off it is going anticlockwise the opposite to how is should be. I thought I would put up with it but it is annoying me. Can you tell me how to fix it please?

Psb 480 re Bosche drill Help - I accidentally turned the drill on without a drill bit in it and now I can't see the clamp bit than tightens to hold the drill bits. What I have done!!

I would put the drill in reverse and hold the "chuck" and very slowly and carefully press the trigger lightly. This should bring the clamping device back where you can see it.

How can I reverse the direction on the drill?

Above the trigger there is a black slide switch that will reverse the direction if its in the colckwise direction the richt side is pushed in if counter clockwise the left side is pushed in.

How do I change the bit?

Ok this is a very general here is a VERY general answer.....turning the chuck (the piece then hold the drill bit) anti clockwise will open the teeth on the jaws of the drill, do this until the bit in there becomes loose, insert new bit and turn chuck clockwise to tighten.
Note: for a keyed chuck use the key provided (if u dont have one your local hardware can provide) for a hand chuck simply turn by hand, you can place drill in reverse and pull trigger for hard to start chucks, but please be VERY careful if u do this as it can and often will "bite" hurting your hand.............really you should ask someone that can do it right in front of you just to safe...please be careful and if in doubt go to your local hardware and ask them to show you.

My DR201 works great in the LEFT (clockwise) setting but NOT in the RIGHT (counter clockwise) position. It will occasionally work in the RIGHT position, but is intermittent. It has always functioned this...

All you have to do is take the model number and go to Sears to order a trigger switch. Take the cover off of the drill, take the wires off the old switch, and put the new one in. It is super simple.

How to change the chuck on 18 volt cordless drills

Set the drill to reverse. Hold the chuck, press the trigger and open the drills chuck to it wide open position. Now,, take the correct size allen wrench and insert it into the back of the chuck to remove the screw. Turn the screw clockwise to remove it. Notice I said clockwise, just the opposite of what you might think. Hold the chuck with your hand or a pair of large vise grips and press the trigger to unscrew the chuck from the drill. Rotate it counterclockwise to remove it from the drill. Reverse the procedure to install the new chuck.

Just purchased a bosch lithium ion cordless drill and notice a bright flash from the motor when i release the trigger is this normal?

it is usually a flash from the brushes that contact the armature. they may have not seated yet. there is the possibility that you have a problem and if it continues you should take it back or contact Bosch customer service.

Need to replace the chuck on a Bosch 1194 VSR Model number 0 601 194 739

open the jaws of the chuck up all the way. There is a retaining screw at the bottom ( under where the drill bit would go). this screw is reverse thread. once the screw is out, get a 3/8 inch allen wrench. chuck the short end into the drill chuck. set the drill on a workbench with the chuck hanging off the edge a bit. Hit down on the allen wrench with a hammer ( counter clockwise) and the chuck will unscrew normal thread.

Faulty bosch hammer drill

a bad trigger switch; bosch sells a replacement part

I have a Bosch PSR12 12V Cordless drill, but no instructions.

This drill has a keyless chuck. Put your bit in the chuck and hold the collar of the chuck while pressing the trigger in the forward position. To undo the chuck do this in reverse. You can also hand tighten the keyless chuck if you prefer. I have a 1/4' adapter that I keep in my drill so I can change bits quickly.
