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.

Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

It's a toughy, but I can explain. The door handle (the part you pull to close, not the latch pull to open) has a cover, it's the fine line you see, take a screw driver and pry that off (it can be very difficult) there are 2 philips screws under it. After that, take off the 3 torx screws on the bottom of the panel.. then, pull the bottom with a quick firmness, and it should pop, then pull until it's loose and lift upwards to lift it off the door, then un-hook all the connections (they are color coded or they only plug in one hole, so don't worry about where they went until you go back together. Getting off the window regulator is much more fun. Unbolt all the 10mm bolts surrounding the panel, then pop the clips holding on the door latch (you won't need to reattach this, it's not needed, it's on the right near where the latch pull goes into the panel). Then you'll see big black circle plugs, pop those plugs and line up the window bolts till you can see them through the hole, unscrew them a little because they squeeze a clamp that holds the window, they don't go through, then slide up the window and secure it, and then work the panel out. ..
For a quick diagnosis, if you can pick up or move the window anything more than 1/2 an inch w/o using the button, than your regulator is broken and will need a new one.. also don't get a "repair kit" because i've had major problems with those, one scratches a window badly, and they are terribly hard to work and install.
