    Default How to remove manual window handle?!

    Ok newby here, but Iíve searched a couple times and I cannot find how to remove the window handle itself. All the PDF links are non existent anymore. On most cars you just pry the handle straight off however on my 98 corolla I cannot remove this. I have removed all screws and clips to the door panel itself so far, but I cannot remove this damn handle. Is there any specific trick to it or did the previous owner possibly glue it into place???
    Thanks for any possible help

    There is a "c-clip" of sorts that holds on all manual window cranks. I typically use a thin rag (like a t-shirt) and wedge it behind the crank and pull up and back and forth on the ends to try and pop the c-clip out from the crank handle. Since you typically can't see the two ends of the clip, you may have to work your way around the crank (360 degrees) while pulling up and back and forth on the rag.

    Well, not that it contributes much...but I'm bored...so the plastic C-thingie is called a snap ring!
    BOOM what a contribution that is.
