    There is a clip behind the window crank. There is a "special" tool that is used to remove the clip, but creative use of a screwdriver or similar tool will get it off. Good luck.

    Push in on the trim panel so you can see the back. The best tool I've found is a length of stiff wire bent into a hook to pull the u-clip off. Like already mentioned, snap the clip back on the crank handle before putting on-then just snap the handle back on.

    you guys got it all wrong /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif the best tool for removing those clips is a rag. turn the handle so the 2 prongs of the clip are pointing down then take a rag and use a sawing motion pull up on it so it goes between the handle and the crank, then boing it'll pop right out /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Pay close attention to where the might go. If you have a magnet around the area that the clip fly in. If it flies off, you might well just buy some more, you'll never find the damn things.

    beater74's got it. The rag trick works every time. And there's always a rag nearby. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
