there is a little spring clip on the inside of the handle but its hard to see. you have to push the door trim in so you can see the back of the winder then you should be able to see the clip. use a long thin flat headed screwdriver and find the end of the clip, have the ends of the clip facing up then use the screwdriver to push down on the clip and it should come off but be careful and be ready to catch it cause they get lost and spring off easliy!!! :thumbsup:

thanks guys n vlfury, I'll give the cloth trick ago, I've got one of those tools but its for the older holdens, so it dont fit, and I cant be bothered buying a newie. I dont understand how everything else is so easy to get off..but not a stupid winder!!
