    Thanks for the help, however not everyone has access to a proper tool for removing window cranks.
    Is there a backyard-alternative? (Something like, specifically shaped chicken wire, etc.)

    Elusiveity – yes, you can either use a very thin scredriver or you could bend a piece of stiff coat-hanger as well. I ended up buying the tool (it’s been a while but I think it was less than $10.00) but before I bought the tool I just used one of my very small Sears Craftsman screwdrivers. The tool makes it easier but it’s not a necessity. Just remember that you’re trying to push the spring clamp that’s on there out of the grooves in the crank shaft. I hope this is helpful.

    Thanks so much for posting your video. It has helped me to remove the window crank of my car so that I could replace a broken plastic lock tab. My car is a 1992 Mitsubishi Lancer model and the C clip of the window crank or winder was positioned 180 degrees to what is shown in this video. The open section of the clip was facing the long crank arm. I removed it by squeezing my fingers into the crank and pushing the C clip open.

    I just found a youtube video which showed another way of removing the window crank without using any special tool. It is by sliding a rag between the door panel and the crank, hard enough to force open the C clip and thus the crank itself. It is a very good method because you don’t have to have that special metal tool shown in this video. I have gone to my DIY hardware shop and this tool was not sold there.
