Re: [FWDLK] Turn, Turn, Turn...



Neil.
That is the best tip yet, I wish I'd thought to mention it.
After looking at all my window and crank handles, the clips are all orientated in the back, so that downward pressure on the clip from above (12 o'clock) when the handle is at 9 o'clock releases the tension at the bottom of the clip, allowing it to disengage away from the slot in the square shaft and come away.
When the handle is against the door panel, there is no way of knowing what this clip looks like.
This knowledge could help to preserve a few of those fragile original ForwardLook door panels.
I would gladly post a picture I have of this in detail, if someone has a website where this could be loaded.

What nobody has mentioned, yet, is that in my experience, the window
cranks should be turned/oriented with their 'arms' facing the NINE
o'clock position, so that their locking-retainer-thingee has its "loose"
tab, facing upwards, so that your removal-tool's jaws  (or, your
modified-butter-knife) can
be inserted straight-down , from the 12 o'clock position, onto that
loose-tab, so that the removal of the crank arm can be made as easily as
possible, but also, you need to know "where" the loose-tab IS, so that
the 'jaws' can fit onto the loose-tab; in any of the other 3 directions,
the 'jaws' won't work!!
