Default How to VERY Easly remove a window crank.

Tools needed:
A bread tie.


How to do it:
Bend the bread tie in half so it has a u shape at one end. Give it a little curve to the tie then with your other hand push in your door panel so that you can get the u shape behind the window crank. After that just kind of fish around till you get a hold of the pin holding the crank in place.

Yes that's obviously ideal. For people like myself who work on cars all the time and have a fully stocked tool box, no big deal. I have 2 of those kicking around. BUT in the event someone happens to need to get into their door panel and only has basic tools and doesn't see it fit to pause work to run to the tool or parts store, I think this video is very helpful. Seems much easier than the old rag method.

If you listen to what I say in the video "if you dont have the right tool for it." I know that they exist and I know also that I don't have one seeing as Im not in my doors daily I dont see the use in spending any money for the tool. Especially since I found this method.

This video wasnt to show the people that have the tool. This video was to help the ones without the tool.


Who knows maybe you lose you specialty tool. Well grab a thing of bread and your good in .5 .

Pulling the edge of a rag through between the panel and the handle will catch the end of the clip and pop the clip right out. Takes litterely 15 seconds or less to do it and cost $0 since everyone has rags around.

Kind of hard to explain but do it like this.





Worked awesome on my old car that had manual windows.
