should be an Allen head or torx screw in the center of the crank.
You need to remove the window hand crank with a window hand crank removal tool.
There is u- shaped flat peice of meltal and it's a window handle clip remover Auyo zone has thewm and they do now cost much! Good Luck!
A flat head screw driver to pop off the plastic cover, and a star screw driver to remove the whole thing.
if you push your door panel back and look down in between the door panel and the window handle there will be a little clip that you have to remove. sometimes you can get it with a screwdriver but they make a special tool for it. most body repair shops or car audio shops will have them and sometimes you can get them to pop that clip out for you for a tip.
Hi, This can be a very frustrating procedure. There is a special tool that is used to remove the window crank. With this tool it takes a few seconds to remove it. I would suggest that you go to independent body shop and asked one of the body men to remove it for you, he probably won't charge you anything, but if he does it won't be much. But if you want to try removing it yourself here is a procedure. Make sure the window is in the down position, you will need to wedge a screwdriver or some other tool between the trim panel and the crank, be very careful not to damage the trim panel. Look for a horseshoe shape metal clip, you might have to rotate the crank slightly to be able to see it, now you can try a small pair of needle nose pliers to pull the clip off the crank or you can try to hook the clip with any tool that has a L shape end and will fit between the crank and the trim panel. To replace the handle simply push the clip onto the crank and snap the crank onto the window regulator. Be very careful and very patient.
Begin by removing the inside door panel of your 2001 Mercury Villager. Remove the window motor wiring harness. Remove the window motor linkage. Remove the window motor retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new window motor.
There are 3 screws you are going to remove. One on the arm rest, one on the left bottom of the panel,one on the window handle. pry back on the plastic cover where mounts to door turn cover up and out the way. There is a torx to unscrew an remove handle. Grab bottom of door panel lift up one inch and pull out. panel will be removed. Obviously depending upon the model year there are differences. My 2000 is like the one ststed above. Some clarification will help. There is a thin plastic cover over the window crank itself. It pops out at the large end of the crank bottom and will rotate out of the way so that you can get at the torx screw. The screw holds the handle to the shaft. You can use a flat screwdriver to gently pry the cover away from the large end of the crank handle. No special tool is needed. Once you have the handle off and the two other screws mentioned above, grasp the panel at the bottom and slide up to remove. There are no snap pins holding the panel in place. It slides up and off of the door latch for removal. I had a hard time with this until I discovered the answer myself. I did this to my 2002 Ford Ranger. Window crank cover pops off to expose Torx screw to remove. First, you need to purchase a special door hand removal from your local auto parts store then follow these steps. Remove screws from door panel (bottom left and inside door handle). Then slid door hand removal tool on the reverse side of window crank handle and parrel to door handle. Once in as far as possible, find your self a large flat head screwdriver and put the flat head between the tool and door handle on the top side of the window shaft. Lightly twist the screwdriver and the window crank cover will pop off. Gently pull and lift slightly to expose Torx screen in the center of the door shaft. Once this window crank is off, simply lift the panel off the door. I hope this helped. Good luck. I was able to do this also on a 2001 Mazda B-Series pickup since they are almost identical, especially on the interior. Needed to replace a blown speaker. Worked like a charm. Also, didn't need to buy some special tool. Just used a torx-head screwdriver to remove the handle. Very easy process.
remove the screw in the inside handle then pop out the plastic piece and remove the screw inside there (big torx bit) remove any other visible screws and pop off the panels retainer clips, disconnect the power lock and window wires.
There is a clip on the back side of the window crank that you have to take off, then take the door panel off.
remove the front passenger wheel, remove the crank pulley, remove the crank sensor. you may need a GM special tool to remove certain bolts
The interior panel pops off and there is one screw behind the little panel underneath the strap handle.
