The exterior door handle on my son's 01 Corolla has snapped off. I have a new replacement part, but in order to remove the old and install the new I have to remove the interior door panel. To remove the door panel I need to remove the crank handle for the window. Allegedly there is a retaining clip between the crank handle and the door panel that I can bend with a screw driver and the handle pulls straight off. After much searching and swearing, I have not found said retaining clip.
Any ideas how to remove the window crank handle without damaging the car?
