Window Crank Removal Tool
Step 1: Open the vehicle's door.
Step 2: Pry and remove the triangular trim panel near the side mirror mount.
Step 3: Pry and remove the cover INSIDE the interior door handle. Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1).
Step 4: Pry and remove the cover INSIDE the interior door pull. Loosen and remove the Phillips screws (2).
Step 5: Using the window crank removal tool, pry and remove the manual window crank handle.
Step 6: Disengage and remove the retaining pins (2) near the door latch.
To disengage these pins, pry OUT on the CENTER of the clip. You can then remove each one.
Step 7: Pry and separate the interior door panel from the door frame.
A series of retaining clips secures the panel to the door frame. As you pry outward, you will hear these clips "pop". Work your way around the outer edge of the panel to release them all.
Step 8: You can now LIFT and remove the interior door panel.
Step 9: Disengage the retaining clip (1) that secures the locking rod to the back of the interior door panel.
Step 10: To reattach the door panel, re-engage the retaining clip (1) to secure the locking rod to the door panel.
Step 11: Slide the panel OVER the locking lever and into place.
With a FIRM, but not too firm, strike near each retaining clip, you can "snap" them all back into position.
Step 12: Tighten the Phillips screws (2), and cover the areas with the covers (2).
Step 13: Reattach the trim panel near the side mirror mount.
Step 14: Reattach the manual window crank handle.
