Questions & Answers

Need to replace the brushes. Does part number 603754-01 include 2 brushes or do I need to order 2 603754-01?
Ronnie Hildreth for model number DC920
Hello Ronnie, Thank you for the question. This is an individual Brush and box. You would need to order 2 to replace both. Hope this helps!
Is this listing for a pair of brush boxes or should I buy two?
Daniel for model number DC935KA
Hi Daniel, thank you for your question. This high-quality brush box is sold individually, keep in mind it includes the metal holder, the brush and the spring. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers
Smoking and sparking drill
Easy fix. I did not know the new motor already has the brush set in place ( I also ordered a set of brushes). Now I have a back up set of brushes. After taking the drill casing 1/2 off, I used my cell to take pictures just in case I had problems getting the drill back together. I will say this as a piece of advice for all: Any time you remove any screws from a plastic case, when you are putting the tool back together you should always first turn the screw backwards until you feel a slight click from the screw trying to seat itself. Then change direction to clockwise to drive the screw in. This will keep you from striping the plastic case screw hole.

Cordless Drill
Parts Used:
Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Star pattern screwdriver set
Brushes were worn to nothing.
Just remove the 4 rear screws on the Dewalt drill remove the electrical connectors. Brushes are tough getting out and back in but you need that to be the case. Use needle nose pliers and keep firm pressure. Ensure to keep the guides lined up. I smashed one of mine and had to fix the guide so the brush kit slid back into the guide. Easy repair that saves a lot of money. Runs like new again.

Tool Type:
Cordless Drill
Parts Used:
Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, hex key
The drill would not always start when I actuated the trigger.
It was simple. I removed the 4 rear drill housing screws using a hex key. I then removed the two wires that clip to the brush boxes. I then used a screw driver to pry out the 2 old brush box assemblies. I cleaned the commutator with a narrow strip of emery cloth and put in the 2 new brush box assemblies. I reconnected the wires, put the rear drill housing back on and fastened it in place with the 4 hex screws.

Look at the new brush boxes before you try prying out the old brush boxes so you can see how the new boxes clip in. It will help you to understand how to pry out the old boxes.

Tool Type:
Cordless Drill
Parts Used:
Brush Box - 603754-01
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
, Torx key
DeWalt drill had loss of power and would not run for long.
Attempted the lease expensive repair (new brushes) to resolve the problem, which it did. Opening the drill side was easy with proper Torx key, and brush replacement was straight forward, simply put back as they were. Reassembling was easy if you assure the tabs on the motor (one on each side) are aligned with the pockets in the housing covers. When you first open verify the position of the transmission switch and the forward / reverse switch as these items need to be in same alignment for the housing covers to seat properly.

3.Carefully pry the old brush box assemblies straight toward the rear with a small screwdriver. they snap-in and snap out.
4.I wiped the graphite (black powdery substance) off of the contact area on the motor with a paper towel.
