Hi, I need to remove the interior rear door panel on a 2006 1.4 C3.

The part I am stuck on is how to remove the door winder that is on the spline, does it just pull off or are there fixings you have to undo?

Thanks

Hi spfspf, it just pulls off
The window winder handle pulls off. Don't pull the winding knob.

Nobody seems to mention the metal clip holding the handle in place it is worth pointing it out because this should be removed beforehand.

Suggest use a couple of flat head screwdrivers possibly even thin nose pliers to remove the clip first as it will make it much easier to remove the winder handle without using unnecessary force.

If the clip is bent in the process it can be manually bent back into shape with little effort.

I found this helpful for my 2009 C3 Picasso and expect it will be fairly standard for most manual winders on other models including the C3.
