Ryobi 12V cordless drill repair


The chuck on my Ryobi drill is stuck in the open position. Is there a trick or method to getting it loose? I took the cover off the drill, but the trouble is just the keyless chuck. anybody have an answer or suggestion>

try the penetrating oil and then get ahold of someone you know who has vice grip like hand strength to unlock the chuck by turning it the opposite way so it closes up

Or you could replace it with a Jacobs chuck,once you have one you'll wonder how you lived without it.

Toss it and go get an 18 volt.
A new quality Jacobs chuck would be as much as the drill is worth.
Hold the chuck with a pair of channel lock and hit the trigger with the drill in reverce, that should unlock it.
