Whats the trick for getting the window cranks off to remove the door trim on a 1995 Impreza sedan?

Anything else I should know before pulling the trim to install new speakers?

Thank you.

My imp has power windows so this is no definite, but the standard technique on most Japanese cars to wrap a cloth around the base the of the window crank and pull! Wear safety goggles or look the other way, the circlip that holds the crank in place will go flying!

The "sail" inside the door mirror housing must be pried out to allow the door skin to be lifted off. There are at least two screws behind blanking plates that hold the skin secure. Pry carefully, with fingers or broad wooden tool around the edges of the door skin to release the plastic rivets.

There is a clip that holds it on and a plastic disc that seems to hide it. I use a screw driver (small one)to pry the plastic disc back, then push on one end of the clip. It usually backs off the handle, then you can easily pull the handle off.
