Hi all, I have a DCD796 brushless dewalt drill just over a year old , and the keyless chuck has failed. The dewalt supplier would not replAce the chuck under the drill warranty , as the chuck is made by another manufacturer.  I purchased a new chuck , and found out that the centre retaining pin is not a torx screw, but a fixed pin.

Can someone give me some advise how to replace the chuck with this centre pin

If there's no Allen or Phillips head, the "pin" you're looking at is just the end of the spindle.  In this case the chuck is only held on by locktite to the spindle and there is no secondary fastener.  There are other topics about this in the forums here if you do a little searching or if I remember right there are some youtube videos covering it.  They can still be somewhat challenging to get off depending on the damage of the original chuck but it should come off.
