Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hi, One of my friends was in the back seat of my jeep and was rolling down the window and snapped off the rotating knob on the crank handle. I purchased a new handle, but I can't tell how to get the old one off and the new one on.
Of course, you can't just replace the knob, the whole piece needs to be replaced.
It *looks* to me that it's just held on by friction (the replacement has a star-shaped indentation) so I suspected that the old one will come off if I give it a good pull and the new one would push on. But I've tugged on the installed crank handle and it's not budging. I'm worried about forcing it. I am pretty handy, but I also know that violence and technology are not good bedfellows and I don't want to force it.
The replacement is in one piece - it doesn't look like it snaps apart and it doesn't look like there is a place for a screw.
Has anyone does this?
You need to remove a horsehoe shape clip behind the handle. Look at the new one, there should be a groove that it snaps into. You can purchase a special tool that slides behind the crank handle and pushes the clip out (only costs a few bucks at parts store), or if u are patient and careful, a couple of small flat screwdrivers placed behind the window crank, u can (but it's tricky) push the clip off. Another method is a piece of wire bent at one end w/ a hook, slide in and hook the closed end of horsehoe clip. good luck! and yes control that brute strength! countrycurt0
