SOURCE: how to remove inner window crank on 2006 chev cobalt 2 dr

the handle part of the crank is held on by a small ring, you will need a small flat head screw driver- i used a butter knife, as it works better- push the door panel back just enough you can see behind the round part of the handle, you should be able to see the foot of the clip, push it off, make sure you don't do this in the grass, the ring will roll when it falls off. **please note this is a flat ring and only about the diameter of your little finger**

SOURCE: Removing door panel of manual crank 2000 VW Beetle

Your window crank is held on by a clip at the base of the crank handle. You need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle) to get behind the base and pull the clip off of the crank.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Remove citroen c3 rear door panel


Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.
Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.
Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.
Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.
Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.
Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.
Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.
Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

How do I remove the handle in door panel? I'm trying to remove the door because my window fell off the track, it doesn't have power windows so I have to manually roll them up and down.


1- remove the window crank
2- remove any screws from the door panel; sometimes they are hidden by a plastic cap. look inside the elbow rest cavity; remove any screws you see.
3- insert a flat plastic or wooden tool in the shape of (roughly) a scraper, between the door panel and door and start prying the clips which hold the panel to the sheet metal. get as close to the clips as possible with the tool, as that will be the easiest way. there are about 8 of these clips on an average door. when all the clips have come loose of the sheet metal, lift the panel straight up to remove it. you will find a metal rod attached to the inside of your handle; unfasten it and remove the panel completely. that handle looks like it is part of the panel and cannot be removed separately.

How to properly remove door panels on my 1989 gmc suburban


Remove the window crank handle (by removing the clip...assuming that it's a manual window). Remove the screws in the arm rest. Depending on the options (full panel, half panel, choo choo custom, etc...) the screws half-way down the door (standard package) the one up by the vent window, and carefully pop the clips along the front, back, and bottom. Lift to remove from the window edge and remove.
