Question window crank

I recently bought a 1963 Ford Ranchero, my first car, and I'm trying to fix it up a little. The door panel on the driver side needs to be fixed but I can't figure out how to remove the window crank so i can take the panel off. I am rather inexperienced when it comes to restoration, so any tips or advice would be great.

Thanks

There is a C-Clip that is behind the crank. If you push back the panel a little, you can see it. There is a tool that you can buy to get it off, but used a bent nail to get mine off the other day. All it does is clip right on, so you should be able to pop it right off. This may sound confusing, but one you see it, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I was trying to remove mine when I first got my truck, and couldn't find it!

Come to find out my handles were aftermarket and had allen screws under the base ... so IF you dont see the C-clips, look for an allen screw.

just wanted to say thanks

Thank you so much for helping me out. I got the crank off and can now start restoring the door panels. I could not have done it without your help.



your hot rod buddy,

Glad to hear you've got it goin' on, Fox!

What are you doing with your door panels? Got any pics?

I just took care of my (butchered) dash by putting a new '55 Chevy radio in and creating a faceplate to cover up the mess and feature the radio ... you can see it all Here

My door panels are off ... I put new regulators in and am focusing on my interior now. I'm planning on making all my own panels AFTER I get the seats I want - I plan on taking two seats out of a newly wrecked 2-door Lincoln or Caddy and then I'll match the color with vinyl for the rest of the interior. Interiors are my favorite part of rebuilding.

ok maybe you guys can help me with a related problem. I can't get the pannel to push back on my t-bird at all, it's in there really tight where the front crank is. I don't see any set screw either. I am affraid to just try pulling it off. Should I try just being a little bit forceful? Any help would be appreciated

USUALLY ... the panels pull off. But I'd remove the handles and cranks first.

That handle is held on by a circle clip like all the rest. Just need to work at getting in there.
