You can also buy that tool at most autoparts stores for around $7. They are a little shorter though, I have one and it works fine.

Re: how do i remove the stupid window crank?!?!

I bought one of those and have never been able to get the clip off with it. I found a rag worked back and forth behind it will catch the clip and pop it off and it won't go flying somewhere you'll never find it again.

Re: how do i remove the stupid window crank?!?!

Haha. This pissed me off for so long until I finally figured it out. I just did it with a fairly sharp flathead screwdriver, then filed a v-cut in the end of a wooden ruler to put them back in and it works great. Took me 2 hours to figure out how to get the first one off, then I realized how retarded I was and it took me less than 30 seconds to get the other side off.

You know you can put the clip on BEFORE you put it back on and it works right? Just line it up and snap it in place.

Re: how do i remove the stupid window crank?!?!

I find the window crank tool works fine with removing and installing the clip. I don't know where my tool came from, or if they are all the same, but it won't push the clip all the way off the handle, so you never lose it.
