Question window cranks

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to take off the window cranks so I can remove the door panel to add power locks. anyone have some advise, I was able to get everything else but not the cranks.

I have power windows so I'm not sure but in the past the window cranks would either have a set screw or the cover part of the crank would pop off exposing the screw/bolt.
Check and see if the handle has a cover piece that pops off, if it does use a plastic knife or something to remove it so you don't leave a pry mark. Good luck

i dont know about the focus (havent had a need to try to remove it) but my old pick up had a clip under the crank you had to remove before you could get the handle off, you might want to look for that, or wait for an expert to correct me....

as it is in most fords, there is a c-clip. all you need is a simple fork to remove it. takes a minute of patience.

actually if you put the clip back on the crank before you attach it to the door it clips right on

take a rag, slip it under the handle portion of the crank, and work it under the crank like ...back and forth, like a shoe shine.
