Replacing the Brushes

1. Remove the brushes

Remove the brush-holder screw.

Use pliers to remove the holder from the drill--it's normal for the brushes to fall into the drill housing.



Flip the drill over and let the brushes fall out.


2. Install the new brushes

Slide the brushes into the holder and use your fingers to prevent them from popping out. 


Use your pliers to continue securing the brushes, then slip the assembly back into the drill.


Tighten the screw to finalize the repair.
