Easiest way to do it.....either the specific tool (i have a pic somewhere).
Or just use a tee shirt.
Loop it behind the handle (like the letter
"U") and swing it around with both hand on either end....it will catch on a point of the little horse shoe shaped clip thats holding the crank on (watch out because those things can fly off!!)
the hanes manualsays use a small rag, easier to get in there instead of a Tshirt. i´ve taken my door panel off sooo many times, it´s quite easy, and you don´t really need to spend money on a tool. but laziness is ok in my books
You ca actually buy boxes of 10 clips at a parts store like Canadian Tire or Part Source.
Its in the section with all the replacement door handles and push clips and other misc. peices.
I think NAPA´s also carry the same line of misc. products.
