Hello everyone! Welcome back to another edition of Do-It-Yourself articles brought to you by all of us here at TooPartsDirect.com. This time we’re going to show you how to replace a chuck in your drill. First however, you’ll need these tools before we start.

Tool List:

Torx Head Screwdriver

Big Allen Wrench


Alright! Let’s get started!

Step 1:

First thing you need to do is to use your Torx Head Screwdriver to remove the center bolt. Remember, it’s reverse threaded.

Once it’s loose, go ahead and turn the drill over and the bolt should fall out.

Step 2:

Now that the bolt is out of there, go ahead and take your allen wrench and tighten it around the chuck. Once that’s done, take your mallet and hit the wrench until it loosens the chuck.

Once it’s loose go ahead and unscrew the chuck from the drill.

Step 3:

Take the new chuck and now screw it onto the drill. Make sure you screw it as tight as you can.

Step 4:

Once the chuck is screwed in tight, take the center bolt and screw it inside the chuck. Remember, it is reversed threaded!

Step 5:

The last step is to check for run out. For those who don’t know, run out is when a drill is rotating off its main axis. If it appears to wobble, you will have to re-seat the chuck.

And there you go! Hopefully this saves you some time and money. Be on the lookout for more how to videos from ToolPartsDirect.com!
