i have had to do this so many times to my excel, because of its dodgy window mechanisms, (btw, i found the best thing to do after it stuffs up too many times is too get a new mechanism at the Hyundai wrecker!)
ok, theres a little metal bent 'U' shaped pin that clips around the part of the handle that's inside the door skin. it takes patience, but you need to get medium sized flat head screwdriver, wedge it behind the winder and make a gap between the winder and the door skin. locate the closed side if the metal pin, and pop it out...sounds easy enough, but it can be tricky to see in there... if you cant pop it out from the closed end, kind of use the screwdriver to pry it off from the open side, hard to explain, but i think this way opens the 'U' up and you can whip it off. NOTE- don't lose the pin, u need it for the winder to stay on when you put it back together!!
i find the easiest way to replace the winder and pin is to hold the pin in place on the winder..in line with the little gaps (you'll see what i mean) then put the handle in place and use the screwdriver again, or something else handy, to clip the pin back in place.
hope this helps, and good luck!
