Did you remove the clips? they should come off easily with just a little prying.

yes, you will need a window crank removal tool from any autozone or like auto store. The clip is a horseshoe shape in between the plastic protector(if there is one)and the round part of the window crank. I have used a small flat screw driver to remove the clip, just orient the crank so that the clip pushes off and you you will be golden.

You can make your own with an old choke or throttle cable, the stiff wire type, bend a small hook on the end, hook the loop on the clip and pull straight up. Dan

I made one out of an old hacksaw blade.
Grind all the teeth off, so you don't damage the trim panel.
Grind one end of the blade, making a fairly large notch until you reach the outer edge of the hole.
Bend the remaining material slightly, so that it will sprung out just a little.

Insert the blade between the washer and the handle, and "hook" the closed end of the clip. Pull on the blade, and voila!
