remove the handle usually in one of three ways...either (1)a small screw in the handle usually pretty obvious and in older cars. (2)a set screw in the side of the handle that mainly wedges the handle on the shaft of the window crank assembly. or (3) the most confusing style, a small 'c' clip on the shaft just under handle. it's a pain to get to on some cars, but with a good set of pick tools, screw drivers, or whatever else you can find, you can pop the clip off, just be sure not to lose it because there is a good chance it'll shoot off pretty far.

to reinstall the last style of window handle, place the clip on the HANDLE in the grooves cut into it. then simply push the handle onto the shaft until you feel/hear a click and the clip has caught on the shaft's groove.

To replace the window crank handle on the 1993 Geo Prism, first remove the interior door panel. Then, access the screw that holds the window crank in place and remove it. You can then remove the handle itself.

there are screws in the door, and holding the handle on. You can get to the ones holding on the handle by pulling off the covers on each side of the door handle inside.

If it's the outer handle you would need to remove the door panel, then remove the rivits that hold the handle to the outside of the car. Then remove the window track and slide it down inside of the door and unhook the rod on the handle,and now you can slide the door handle out.
