    My Homelite 480W hammer drill have a bad keyed chuck,and i want to replace it.I used a drill driver using a phillips 2 head in clockwise direction.However the screw is so tight it only partially shed the head of the screw off.How can i remove the screw without doing more damage?
    The torque is at 5 for the drill driver.Even when pushed hard to screw and using a traditional screwdriver it just damage the head further.
    Thanks in advance.

    This is the holding screw on the inside base of the chuck your talking about?
    Drill of the screw head, fit a large pair of mole grips or a pipe wrench on the chucks outer barrel tight, then smack the extended handle sharply with a mallet or similar, anti clockwise. This should break the seating of the chuck > shaft threads and allow you to remove it...pinenot :)

    Screw holding chuck normally a left handed thread , which would explain why it snapped screw head.
