The window winder consists of two parts - the handle part and the round part. if you look at the round part, you will see that it consists of two parts. the bottom part can in actual fact be pushed forward (this is the part closest to the door panel). if you push this forward it will un click and you can remove it.
hope this helps

Manualy operated window on front door wont roll up or down


Kindly check the winder handle if OK. If fine you need to check the winder unit by removing the door panel. Possibly the teeth of the unit is worn out and also check the return spring.

Usually two or three screws along bottom edge one behind all handles. Remove screws carefully pry panel loose away from door using caution not to damage the clips holding panel on might need a tool for this. I removed enough not to need tool.

Toyota Tazz window winder


Toyota Tazz driver side window refused to wind properly. Problem was that winder mechanism and window separated - old glue. Found some input from Ben on this forum. Some pointers after doing the job today.
Step 1 - remove the arm rest - two screws
Step 2 - remove the screw holding the door opener handle.
Step 3 - remove the C-clip holding the winder handle. The clip is round but the ends are slightly bent outward - to fit back easily. Use a large screwdriver to force a small opening (thus moving the panel slightly inward). I took a piece of thin solid wire and bent it into a loop. This looped wire I hooked around the one end of the clip and pulled in the opposite direction towards the inside of the car. The open end is towards the part of the handle you wind. Make sure the top of the handle faces towards the interior of the car (door is open wide). The clip shot off (as Ben warned) but landed in the car.
Step 4 - the door handle (square) must be slid forward and outward towards you. Will now be loose but is held by the rod going to the lock.
Step 5 - loosen all clips carefully by pulling the panel forward - large screwdriver works.
Step 6 - lift up the panel - and push the door handle holder through the hole in the panel. The panel will now be free.
Step 7 - the window can be removed in this case where window and mechanism seperated by simply pulling the window upwards and outwards.
Step 8 - I used a small grinder and removed most of the glue - but not all.
Step 9 - put the window back into the door making sure it is correctly aligned in the side-sliders.
Step 10 - I used an epoxy 2-part glue (Pratley) and placed some glue in the holders. Position the window and mechanism correctly (using glue I left as marker). Note that only 2 holes in door panel can be used to see or fit glue.
Step 11 - Mix more glue and apply front and back. Now place some grease in the mechanism rail (horizontal) and wind window to the top. Leave to dry.
Step 12 - replace all in reverse. Clip pushes on easily - I used a small long-nose pliers.

Cheers,

How do i remove door panel to get window runner


The panel is usually a pop button type retainers holding the panel on, Obviously all screws will have to be removed ie; grab handle, internal door opening lever, and the window winder,
TIP remove window winder handle with a shoe lace or a lenght of thin material , it's a horseshoe shaped spring clip holding the winder handle on and pulling the shoe lace or material in the opposite direction of clip will easily remove clip (don't loose ) Good luck

Removing rear passanger door panel on 1993 toyota camary wagon


mmmm from what i can recall 2 screws in arm rest (two small holes underneath arm rest hides the screws)take these out also one in door handle trim behind handle, And the window winder if you look close in the gap between window winder and door trim you should be able to see a curbed metal pin this holds winder in place so to remove it get a knife ( thin blade will fit in between winder and trim) and push on the end bit of the metal pin and it should spring off and then door handle can be removed. After this run your hands around door trim gently pulling around all edges ect this will pull door trim away from supports
