    Does anyone know how to take the lock (the part the key goes in) out of the window crank handle? I think I have
    tried everything and I can get it out.

    mine just fell out. lol Anyway, if you do get it out, you might consider stuffing the end of a bike grip in the hole to keep the spring from flying out. If you don't and it does fall out, you wont be able to crank the windo up or down. I learned that the hard way

    Lowriders are for guys that can't get it up!

    Redfrog,
    You need to take out the back panel from the inside of the tailgate. I just replaced mine and it works like a charm. It really isnt that hard either, just be patient because there are some small parts and it could get hairy. You do ahve to remove the whole crank in order to replace the lock. Also be careful because if you do not there are some some pieces the the lock needs to function properly and watch that small spring.
