There are 2 ways the handle can be attached. One way is there is a cover on the handle that can be popped off and there is a screw holding it on. Or there is a clip on the handle between the handle and the door panel. There is a tool made for this, but it can be done without the tool. If you push in (towards the door) on the door panel and look at the back side of the handle you will see the clip. Simply pop off the clip with a flat blade screwdriver and pull the handle off. To install the handle put the clip back on the handle first and then push the handle onto the shaft. Hope this helps.

Think I can help you here. On all manual windows, regardless of make or model, it requires a bit of good vision and luck. With the crank facing away from you use a screwdriver to push the handle away from the doorpanel and a pair of needlenose pliers to reach in between the doorpanel and the handle to grab the c-clip that holds the spline in place. Firmly grasp and pull straight out. Once the clip is removed the crank handle should pull straight off of the shaft. On some occasions on older model vehicals there will be a screw in the center of the shaft through the handle. It should be a Torx T15 - T25 or phillips head. That screw will have to be removed before shaft will release from the handle. Hope this helps, good luck!

To get that clip out of there, just stuff the open end of a sock into the crack between crank handle and door panel, then pull it around in circles. When it catches the end of the clip and is pulled that clip will pop right out of there MUCH easier than using pliers in that small space!

I have a manual crank window and when you turn the Handel the window does not go up or down


Does it feel as if the handle is just spinning without operating anything? If so, splines inside the handle may be stripped. Remove handle to inspect. Depending on make and model, it may reqire a special tool to remove (cheap from parts store)

Take off passenger side door panel 2006 honda pilot


This procedure will require one special tool from an auto parts dealer to remove the window crank, door handle release, and to get behind the panel to pop the keepers out that are attached to the back of panel and just press into the holes in the door. Slide this tool in between the panel and door, find position of each keeper, and pop them out of the hole. Use the tool to push the spring clips from the window crank and slid the crank handle off, then remove the panel. If has power windows, just unplug the wire harness from the buttons.

How do you remove the window handle


Below is a photo of the special tool that is available to disengage the spring clip retainer, also seen that fits into a groove in the crank socket that locks the crank onto the regulator shaft. Sometimes you can use a small precision type flat bladed screwdriver to disengage the clip, but it can be challenging. The special tool should be available at most auto parts stores.

How hard is it to change a window regulator yourself


Depends on which window. Both both are fairly hard to do the first time. There are a lot of trick you need to know to remove the door panels, handles, knobs. etc. If you are very handy and have basic tool you can do it. You WILL get many skinned knuckles. It really helps to have a second person to hold up the glass when removing the regulator. If your dealing with a manual type it is much easier that electric. Hardest part with manual crank is to remove the crank handle, It is held in place by a C shaped ring on the inside that you need a special (but cheap) tool to remove. (Or 2 small screwdrivers if you know where to place them. Good Luck

How do i take the window knob off when removing the door panel?


Most window cranks require a special tool to remove, because they have a "C" type clip on the back side holding them on, the tool slips between the crank and door panel and pops the clip loose. You can get the tool at about any auto parts store and they dont cost much. Or Ebay for like 5 bucks140.jpgJust do a search on ebay for window crank tool.
