Removing manual window cranks

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how to remove the manual window cranks? I am doing a door speaker upgrade and can't figure out how to remove them.

If there's no set screw on the handle stem, it may simply be held in-place by friction and require even, consistent pressure to extract.

Most manual window cars I've worked on use clips to secure the cranks, they're best removed with one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-WINDOW-CRANK-DOOR-HANDLE-C-CLIP-REMOVAL-TRIM-TOOL_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem5883762b2dQQitemZ380162681645QQptZMotorsQ5fAutomotiveQ5fTools though you can sometimes manage it with other improvised tools.

The window cranks are held on by friction, and there are 2 small cuts to let it expand so it can come off. I used a small screwdriver to spread the cuts and pulled, but I bet you could just pull them off. There are no clips.

Did you figure out the door pulls and the inside handle cover?

That's the way the side door and rear door lock buttons are. I removed them to prevent problems mentioned here.

The door pulls have a small hole on the side closest to the panel that you can use to push the pull cover off, then the pull is screwed to the door through the panel. I used a paper clip to push them off. No problem.

Does anyone know where to buy a replacement window crank??

I was helping a buddy do a killer setup in his transit van today and he broke the passenger window crank and it will no longer stay on by itself and I dont want to epoxy it on since I am sure at some point I will want to remove the door again for when we decide to upgrade to a different set of speakers...I put a good set of comps in already and we are going to fiberglass a single 8" sub into each of the back sliding doors sometime soon as well as placing 1 amp per sub and 1 amp for the interior speakers

I REALLY think that dual 8's in this wan will sound great and should give great imaging, those along with the eclipse 34 way comp'

s we put up front and maybe a set of horn loaded compression drivers underneath the dash...This van/thing is gonna be rockin LOL
