Unhappy Jaw dropped out of keyless chuck of cordless drill

While working with my Skil Model 2868 Cordless, 18V drill the other day, one of the 3 jaws in the keyless chuck dropped out into my hand. I can't figure out how to re-install it properly and the Skil manual and website is no help. I received the tool as a Christmas give a few months ago and it will be under warranty, but it seems like such a pain to ship it to NJ for repairs at my shipping expense. A new chuck is $20. There HAS to be an easy way (doesn't there?) to replace the jaw properly. HELP!!!!

I once sucessfully repaired a large chuck from a drill press and had to remove the chuck and then remove the guts from the bottom.
I'm honestly not sure if the chuck on a cordless drill would be repairable.

I suppose if I get board I could try to take one apart on a junker drill.
