I tried the dishrag thing and it didn't work for me. The crank on my '97 SC2 is held on by a wire spring shaped like an omega. The top of the omega is located opposite the crank arm and is held up by two little standoffs 1/8 inch apart, so you can get a hook under it and pull it loose. I made a little hook (1/8") on the end of a strip of steel 3/64 X 3/32 inch. It was the backbone out of a discarded windshield wiper. About 1 inch up, I put about a 5 degree bend in it, the same direction as the hook, so that it could have some travel once it got inserted behind the handle. Push the trim panel in a little, slip the hook behind the handle opposite the arm, hook the spring and give it a sharp pull. I had to use pliers. The spring will pop off and roll under the car, so don't do this in the grass.

The window crank slips because the regulator gear has most likely stripped. You will need to remove the outer door panel to verify for sure but unless the crank is broken (It would fall off if it was) the regulator is stripped

You can remove the window crank handle by just using a simple shop rag. How you do this you slide the rag(unfolded) between the door panel and window crank and rotate around the window crank until you snag the clip that is retain the window crank. The clip is a simple wire clip shaped like a "C" To reinstall you place the clip back in the groove on window crank and press back on the window regualtor shaft
