Hey. This sounds really stupid but how in the hell do I take off the window crank to get the door panel off. I have a 93 se-r, and it's got manual windows. I've been trying for like an hour. I'm pretty frustrated. Any help would be great
there is like a little c-clip thats holding it in.. if you get like a little flathead screwdriver and push in the door panel a little bit around the hole where the crank goes in, you should see a clip in there (might need a flashlight to see it). just pop the clip off and the crank should come right off.
if you pull on the handle a little bit, you will see a piece of metal that looks like a bend paper clip. It is shaped kind of like a 'U' but with the top of the U flared out. Push on the top of the 'U' with something small like a screwdriver. here does a pathetic diagram:

There is actually a tool for this. It's appropriately called a "window crank removal tool." You could also buy a "hook tool" set from Pepboys or Autozone. You then use the small hook to reach around and pull out the clip.
