    just pry with a screw driver. im pretty sure there is adhesive on there...just dont pry against the handle (cause it will break)...pry against the plastic ring (which might also crack, but its better than breaking the handle).

    There's a little metal clip that you have to slide off. Pull the cap that goes around the window crank back a little and you should be able to see it. It is a bitch to get out. I struggled for about 10 minutes with a screw driver to get it out.

    yeah lil metal circlip in there; pop it off by wedging a flathead screwdriver in there and then the crank comes right off with no stress. ps don't lose the circlip.

    If you goto advance auto the window crank remover is $3.95 LOL! You just slide it behind the crank and it pops the clip out nice and easy :)

    I find its harder to get the flathead in there. The tool is very cheap and really saves a lot of headache as well as doesnt nik the crank all up too.
