How to Remove a Stuck Drill Chuck
Broken gearboxes and sticky chuck screws can make removing a drill chuck difficult. This article explains the tricks you need to overcome these common repair setbacks.
You do have to remove the housing..[separate the screw side] lift up the motor.. remove the wire connection one at a time or just make sure you note the + and the - markings..then you can use a screwdriver tip to pry or lever out the brush assy..you will see how the replacements just snap in..! once you are inside the drill and your old brush's don't look so bad..you may have to just replace the motor.. not sure what you mean about the rivet thing.. but you do have to be careful that everything go's back together correctly..:)
hope this helps...

I've had the thing apart and I just don't see how to remove the brushes because the housing they set in is riveted to the motor. It looks to me like I need to remove the housing to remove the brushes.
I'm quite sure its a brush problem because I'm getting a lot of sparks on one side when I let off on the trigger. It stoped dead once and when I moved the brushes a little it started working again.I guess I'll wait until my new brushes come in and that might answer my question.If it doesn't I'll be back on the forum for help. Thanks again!!!
