Tip & How-To about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro
The first order of business: grab a screwdriver and wedge it between
the door panel and crank. There’ll often be a plastic disc in between
there as well as a clip. You may not be able to see the clip very well,
or at all in some cases.If you can see the clip, start stuffing a rag in the space where the
clip is. If you can’t see it, make a guess which side of the disc the
clip is on. If you’re wrong the worst that’ll happen is you’ll have to
repeat this. No harm done.Now using a flossing or shoe-shine motion (whichever analogy you
prefer) work the rag back and forth, applying a little pressure. Most
of the time the horseshoe clip is facing with the prongs down toward
the handle, in which case you’ll want to work the rag around so the rag
is hitting that part of the shaft. But sometimes it’s the other way,
and you’ll need to spin the rag around and work that side of the crank.If everything goes well you might hear a tiny pop. You might be
rewarded with the clip flying loose. Or you might hear nothing. In any
case, try and remove the crank. If it doesn’t come loose, try again on
the other side of the plastic disc or the reverse side of the shaft.
Note: Don’t lose the clip. You’ll need that to put the crank back on.
Installation is pretty simple as well. Just reassemble the crank/clip/disc and position the clip so it’s stuck on the crank in the slots but the prongs don’t go in them. Carefully position the crank in place and nudge the clip home with a screwdriver once it’s seated.
