Window crank handle removal - how?

How do you remove the crank handle on a '05 SD XL front door?

Thanks!

Cannot help since I have power windows but here is a bump! I would assume there is a "U" shaped clip on the back side of the handle that needs to come off.

You need a window crank puller. It is a U shaped flat tool. You should be able to get one at most auto parts stores.

It pushes the retaining clip off (and puts it back)

WRONG!!!! The clip pertains more to GM vehicles.

On XL versions of the ford superduty without power windows, here is the procedure.

On the window roll up handle the outer black surface is actually a plastic cover clipped over the handle. Grab the sides of the handle near the door panel and unclip the cover, and then move the cover to the side. You will see that in the center is a torx headed screw you need to unscrew, and then just wiggle the handle a little and it will pop off.

To remove the door panel after the handle is off, unclip the inner mirror trimplate, unclip the small plastic piece just in front of the armrest, remove the 1 screw hidden under there, remove the lower rear door panel reflector, remove the screw hidden under the reflector, grab the door panel and slide upwards towards the sky and remove. Takes about 3 minutes. Tops.

Dont forget, when you install the crank handle, you should index it so when the windows are rolled up, it matches the position on the other side.

I usally put the handle in a spot that doesn't hit my leg with the window up or down.

2002 F350 V10,
EXCELLENT directions. I had a lower windo rattle. I had the door panel off, window track tightened and back together in less than 10 minutes. That included a few walks back and forth to the garage for tools. THANK YOU!

84deisel,
How big is your leg? My leg would need to be a foot and a half in diameter to hit the crank :-) Actually that is exactly what I did to my Fairlane. There my legs easily hit the crank.

Thanks again!
