How to remove an early 1960’s Chrysler
or Mopar interior door window crank handle.

"Truth be told, either a butter knife, table knife, or any piece of thin, flat metal will do. I was able to bend the tip of the butter knife by putting the knife on a sledge hammer, and taking a few wacks at the butter knife with a ball peen hammer. If I could of got the angle closer to 90 degrees it would have been better… but it still worked. If you have a table vice, you probably have better luck. Next you push it in from the right if the handle is a 12 o’clock, or left if the handle is at 6 o’clock -- be sure to insert the knife between the black plastic spacer/washer and the crank itself.

You’ll have to move the handle a little and try to get the knife in the little gap....ya just gotta play with it and it will magically pop off."
