Your local autoparts store should carry a tool specifically for this clip...it has two flat "fingers"

  6. Disengage clips attaching door trim to door frame around perimeter of panel.
  7. Lift trim panel upward to disengage flange from inner belt molding at top of door.

How to remove a manual window winder from a 1997 mitsubishi magna sedan


There is a spring clip (kinda like a c-clip) underneath the crank handle, holding it fast to the stub shaft it sits on. There is a special hand tool made for window crank handle removal-a couple of dollars should buy one. But you can also use a rag to get the handle off. Slip the rag underneath the edge of the crank handle, get it between the handle and the door panel, and saw the rag back and forth under the handle. The rag will catch the ends of the c-clip and push them back so the handle can be removed. You may have to slip the rag around the handle till you catch the ends of the spring clip.

How do remove the window crank so i can remove the door panel?


There is a little clip behind the crank where it goes thru the panel. the clip looks like a "C" shaped clip..you'll need a small pick or screwdriver to pop it out..there is a tool specially made for this and can be rented fron autozone...once the clip is off crank pulls right off...when re-installing..put clip back on the crank , place crank over shaft, and press on till you hear it click.......ps..be careful as to not lose the clip...it's spring loaded and may go flying when you pop it off...if you do lose it they are readily available

How do I take the window handle to get the door panel off?


there is a C clip that slides over window crank locking it on to the window crank shaft. A strong tool like a dentist pik that has a hook on it works great !! Or a small long flat screw driver, push in on the door panel by the window crank and look between crank and door panel, you will see this clip on the back of handle. push or pull this clip off the handle and the handle will pull off the window crank shaft. keep an eye on this clip as it like to take flying lesson.( wear safety glasses.) When installing clip, install on window crank in the slits or grooves and just push handle onto crank rod. you might have to hit with rubber mallet (TAP TAP ) make sure it locks on.

How do you get the right side door interior panel off


The handle slides over the window crankshaft and uses splines to match the window crank shaft splines as to avoid slippage. It's held in place with a simple open ended spring clip that snaps onto the handle. To remove the spring clip you can use or purchase a window handle removal tool or use a small pick bent at 90 deg. The clip is located between the handle and the door panel. Using your fingers or a soft tool, spread the handle and door panel away from each other and look between the two to see the clip. With the pick, get under the clip and pull it outward and it will pop off over the window regulator shaft and handle.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Trying to remove the door panel to get to the lock mechanism but dont know how to remove the window crank handle


Push the door panel in gently and there will be a clip behind the window crank handle. Remove the clip and the window crank will come off the splined shaft. The clip will be in a half circle around the spline shaft.
