Default Manual window crank removal

How do you remove the window crank from the manual window doorsills? Was about to take a flathead screwdriver to it, but thought twice ...

there is a little metal clip that hides behind the window crank that pins it to the regulator. what u do is get a little pick and pull it right out and off comes the handle

yep, that will do the trick.

just look under the crank, there's a small rectangular shaped opening just enough to insert the flat tip of the screw driver. slowly pry that U-shaped clip that locks the crank/handle from the shaft.

see the pic. sorry for my poor illustration

Once you do it, you'll think it's soooo easy from then on.

You can also remove the clip with a grease rag..
Drag it through and catch one end of the clip..

To re-install,position the clip as shown in the second picture,
Hold the handle in the postion you want it and give it a slight smack
and it will pop right on..
