Please give us a bit of information! What router, type of bit, and what You have dome to loosen the bit. Remember: Do not tighten the bit when the bit is bottomed out.Also: When removing the bit, use a piece of dense wood to tap on the shaft of the bit. The collar can be wedged in the cap, and tapping the shaft will help release it. Then replacing a bit, pull the bottomed out bit back about 1/8 inch before tightening the collet completely! Do not lube the shaft to loosen a bit. If it is not cleaned out and all lube is not out, the bit may move and be thrown into the shop, and they can do a great amount of damage to You, a Friend, or Your project! Welcome to the forum, We are glad that You are here. I do not want to sound like I am all work, but feel that a great many people could be hurt with a bit!
