Remove window crank

Look and see if there appears to be a plug in the handle over the shaft. If there is gently pry it out and you will find a hex head screw in the handle that is holding the handle on. IN all cars it is about 50-50 between circlips and bolts.

What tool do you use to remove window crank on a 1996 pontiac sunfire?

There is a small circlip that holds them on in between the door cover and the handle, hard to see and tricky to get.Its like a horsehoe and needs to be pushed off plastic window crank shaft with screwdriver.Sometimes a little prying from behind can get them to pop off also

Removing exterior door handle on 2001 Jeep Wrangler

thundergod is right - there is a wire retainer clip that helps to secure the plastic crank to the metal post.

To remove it, I used a fat screwdriver to wedge between the bottom of the crank and the door panel. This gave me enough clearance to see and remove the wire retainer clip. Using needle-nose pliers, I managed to snag the clip. A quick pull and the clip was out and the crank handle popped right off.

After that, there are three torx screws that hold the interior panel in place - two at the bottom and one toward the left center of the panel.

But this is the easy part - removing the exterior handle is a'd be better off paying someone with the appropriate tools and knowledge to do that for you.

My manual roll up/down window does not work. How do I fix it. how do I get the panel off ? Do I need to take off the roll up down handle to get the door panel off, if so how do I take the handle off?...

you do need to remove the door handles to remove the door trim panel, if it has arm rests on the panel look for 2 or 3 plastic plugs which only press in and are easy to remove with a blade, if they are not present the arm rest may be part of the trim as one unit.
the winder handle may have a spring clip behind the handle and the trim, if that is the case you will need a special tool to remove the clip. also check for any screws that may be holding the panel to the door, when all screws etc are removed just lever the panel away from the door with a flat blade or screwdriver. hope this info helps

if its a standard clip type window crank what you do is get a shop towel or cut up an old t shirt. take the rag and slide it between the door panel and crank. then rotate the rag around the crank it will grab the clip easily and disenguage it. watch it though the clip may fly out and you will loose it. then just pull off reinstall the crank put the clip on the crank and just push it back on the shaft

2005 sunfire pontiac frond door

It is likely the handle or rod came of the lock mechanism. YOu will have to remove all the screws in the door panel and then take a pry bar or huge flat-tipped screwdriver and pry the panel off the door. Then take a look inside to see what doesn't look right. You may see the rod hanging there or it may be lying on the bottom of the door. It should snap back in place, if it doesn't stay in place, then a new little plastic fastner will need to be installed to hold the rod in place.

1998 pontiac sunfire, where is te turn signal fuse

When you open up the drivers side door there should be a panel right on the end of the dashboard. Pull it open and look there. I generally have the fuse diagrams but can't seem to find it for your car. It might be written on the inside of the panel you pull off. You should also have the diagram inside of your book you got with the car unless someone took it out. Look in your glove box it might be there.
