I need to replace the window crank on my 1992 Camry, but I can't seem to figure out how to remove the old one. I have removed all of the screws and fasteners, but there are none on the hand crank itself, and the crank won't just pop off. I don't want to damage anything by forcing it off either. Any suggestions?
