DeWALT Impact Driver Repair – Replacing the Hog Ring (DeWALT Part # N053863)

“The hog ring is the retaining ring used to
secure your impact driver’s bit chuck assembly. The Hot Ring fits into a groove on the end
of the anvil and holds the chuck assembly together. Over time the hog ring can lose it’s tension,
fall off, causing the chuck to come apart. Replacing the hog ring is a repair that you
can do yourself and I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do-it-yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor drills. Our how-to videos walk you through each repair
from start to finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the hog ring from the
chuck. The hog ring fits into a groove on the anvil
and secures the chuck together. There’s a spring behind the hog ring, I want
to be careful that I don’t lose all the parts when the hog ring is removed. I use a pick to remove it. Now, install the compression spring and place
the plane washer over the top. Now, I can replace the hog ring. This is a little challenging because you have
the compression spring trying to push everything away from the anvil. What I’ll do, is take a small pair of needle-nose
pliers and use them to compress the spring. You’ll notice that the anvil is dog-eared
and I’ve aligned the pliers with the dog-ears on the anvil so I have some room to work around
the spindle. I’ll place the hog ring over
the spindle. That’s how easy it is to replace the hog ring
on your impact driver. Be sure to check back often for new videos
