Howdy and happy coooold Saturday! I'm removing the window cranks and latch levers from the interior of my car. I've run into several that will not budge after popping the pins out. I need suggestions on how to free up these handles without destroying them. Help?

put a tiny bit of 3in1 oil in the pin holes. if your interior is nice it could be a challenge not to get oil on the fabric. wait a day or two. then wiggle handles up and down while pulling. for more leverage, wrap some cloth around handle then gently clamp on a vice grip ....wiggle & pull.

Thanx!
After an additional 2 hours+ I got it off . Had to destroy the escutcheon to get the crank off but they are relatively cheap, if you shop around
