    I'm in the process of trying to remove my door panel from the inside but I can't seem to remove it. I need to be able to take the window crank off. How do you do this? Is there something else I may be missing? It's really starting to anger me. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    The window crank is held on with a little C-clip that needs to be removed in order to pull the handle off. If you push the door panel in you can peek behind the crank and see it.

    You can buy a tool that is made specifically for these stupid little C-clips:

    Use a thin screw driver..that special tool WILL sit in at the bottom of your tool box. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    After you remove the window crank, you'll have these clips that are at the top of the panel, where it meets the glass, and they dont like to come off. On mine I had to tap up on the panel until it came free. I thought I was going to break it but I didnt. Good luck with yours.
