Could someone tell me how you get these off real quick.. I feel like a moron..
Well there is a tool for it but assuming you dont have it... I usually take a pick that has a loop and hook the c clip behind the handle. That clip is what holds the handle to the shaft
There is a little u-shaped clip that ya simply push off the shaft. Auto Zone/Advance anyplace sells a cheap tool to remove it. I take it off with a screwdriver.
I finally found the little clip thing.. there was a little round plastic cover hiding it. Thanks for responses.
Anytime guy. Have fun.
use a wire feeler gauge..
I use one of the thicker wire type feeler gauge to pull off those "Jesus" clips..I call thm that because most of the time they fly off somewhere,and you say "Jesus"..I'll never find THAT clip again!...those clips are good things to keep if you junk a truck,or are boneyard shopping..never can have enough of them ..
I had that exact thing happen to me... "pingggg".. gone..
I probably said "jesus" too.. or something worse considering the heat lately..
At least those handles go on easy. What's with this crazy engineering.. do they make stuff this difficult purposely so that your car can't be stripped in minutes?
Kind of defeats the purpose though doesn''t it? All the time and money in labor...
yeah that plastic thingy is a pain... but I use a craftsman needle nose that are bent on a 45 degree or 90 bend..... professional series I think? was a bday gift and first time I had a use for it
Dont know if this is true, but it is pretty far off topic
My uncle told me that the term "jesus clip" came about in Vietnam. There was a clip, or a cotterpin, big beefy one, that held the main rotor on in one of the helo's out there, think it was the UH-1 Huey. Any way, that clip "was the only thing between you and Jesus" Hence the name
I spent an hour trying to get to that clip before i got frustrated and cut door panel off and threw it away only to find p/o had apparently lost clip and glued the roller on
I use a thin rag to get it off. pull the rag behind the handle at the open end of the clip and the jobs done. I wish the reverse were as easy. lol
Just take a rag and work it in around the handle and grab both ends of the rag and work it around. The clip pops off very easy this way. Within seconds. But to add to the tool collection the removal tool is really cheap.
I just snap the ring on the crank handle and push back on and the ring clicks back into place
ya but see, that makes too much sense! That's why I never thought to do it! ;-)
