Question about Nissan Sentra
How is the window crank attached. How do you remove?? type of special tool??
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!
