How do i get a manual window crank off of my 1997 GMC sonoma??


There's a c clip holds the crank onto the shaft. Without having the special tool you can with some patience use a screw driver to push the c clip off. Not real easy but can be done

How do you remove the inside rear door panel of a 2002 ford explorer. I need to service the power window on the rear door on the passenger side. Submitted on 9/29/2009 @ 1:07 pm. Thank you


1. Open window & remove door lock knob. 2. Remove 2 screws from armrest & remove armrest. 3. If manual windows, remove windoe crank. 4. Pry under & remove trim panel around door handle, remove any un-covered screws. 5. This is the fun part, the door panel is affixed with plastic retaining clips, slip something thin under door panel until you can feel where clip is and pull door panel away from door at that point. These clips are suppose to remain in the door panel, but rarely do. They usually remain in the door itself. do this for EVERY clip you find, there are clips approx a foot apart around the entire panel. Good luck. 6. After all retaining clips are pulled out, lift panel slightly to disengage panel from flange at base of window. 7. Disconnect any electric wires or switches and there you have it. Try not to curse.

Want to fix the passenger side mirrow motor for toyota sequoia 2005


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door and disconnect the cables from the mirror going into the door

4 door sedan left front window regulator manual


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door. Slide the retaining clip on the window crank to the side and the crank will pop off. Then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.You'll need to disconnect the bolts holding the regulator to the frame and connecting the regulator to the base of the window (make sure you use wedges to hold the window up) and the regulator will slide out of the door.. reverse to put back
