You'll see a small ring on the inside of the crank where it meets the panel. That ring holds the crank in place. To remove the handle simple push the ring up and the handle will slide right off. Depending on the position of the crank the ring might have to be pushed up down or sideways. Hope that helps.

Front Passenger door lock stuck

Hi Andrew:
Many local tow truck operators know how the latches work and use a tool called a slim jim to trip the latch.

If you really want to give it a go yourself, I'd remove the interior panel on the drivers door so that I could see exactly how the mechanism worked. Using that knowledge, you'll have to practice using a skinny tool, wire, whatever works, to unlatch the drivers door.

Once you've got it figured out, apply the mirror image of that process to the passenger door.

When you achieve success, you will be well on the way to becoming a tow truck driver. (or a car thief)

Happy Happy!

Need to remove door panel on 1984 thunderbird and this old man cant figure it out

To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel.

Cant figure out how to remove the door panel to fix my door

After you have made sure that all the screws are out there are little christmas tree looking clips that hold the door paned on. Just pull out on the panel, then push up on the panel and release the top.

Need to know how to take apart my door

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Door will not close completely

You have to remove "hidden" screws where the inner door handle is. There may be more. Usually they're covered up with caps. Look for round caps on the panel. Remove the caps and you'll find mounting screws. Clean the runners that the door rides on. There may be dirt and what not keeping the door from closing all the way. Clean your door latch and re-lube them.
