first, nice name!:) Orlando FL??
but, it's easy once u get the hang of it. there's just a little metal retainder clip(like a crooked C) on the post that the crank is on. it's hard to see tho. push back the round cushion spacer against the door panel to try and see behind the crank for the clip. i use a small precision flathead screwdriver(like for watches) to pry it off(it may shoot out). u might be able to use some REALLY skinny needlenose pliers. that's it. hard to explain, but easy to do. next time'll be easier. hope this helps. Peace
-Dan

its easier if you pull it out with a magnet. They make special tools with high power little magnets on a stick at any auto store. Go check it out

There is a metal tool that is used for removing hand cranks. Most part stores carry them.
They are made for each vehicle. They sell for about $5.00 maybe only a little more.

It slips behind and pops it off very easily.
I have used them before on other vehicles.

You can take a rag, pull it between the door panel and the crank.. it'll catch the clip and pull it off..

its kinda like a c/u shaped clip, some peeps call um jesus clips cause when ya use the flat-blade method it sometimes flies into the grass and the name comes from what ya say next..

I made a tool out of a papar clip. Straightened it out and bent a little hook on the end. You can grab the end of the C-clip with that and yank it out.

To re-install the crank, put the clip back on the window crank, position it over the post & hit it with you hand to snap it back on.

Easy once you've done it once.
