54 pontiac,removing door panels


Ok so started out to change out the door latch assembly on my 54.Got the latch loose and ready to come out but i cannot for the life of me get the door/window handles off.It looks like their is some sort of spiral spring behind but after an hour of trying i haven't even got one off yet,aarrgghhh!!!!I have a gm door clip tool but it doesn't seem to work,manual is pretty much useless on the topic,anybody,help!!!

Just a C shaped clip that will push out with the proper tool. Come at it from the open side of the C.

Think your seeing the coil spring that hold the door pad out to handle. pry the door panel as close to handle as possible,may even have a plastic shield you have to get behind, then look at the shank of handle that goes onto spindle, you should see a "slot' in shank with the "c" clip, turn handle till you can get at "open" end of clip with the tool & "pop" off the clip!!!
