Anyone have ANY idea how to do this. Tried yanking on it for a while and it just wouldnt come out. Is it screwed in, or do they just not come out

I used to havea 95 Ga with manual windows, on mine there was a little clip stopping it from coming off, my dad had a special tool that almost looked like the shape of a Y, and u slid it behind the crank and it popped out the clip.

There is a U shaped clip. It's between the handle and plastic washer. Use a rag or piece of saran wrap to remove it.

Yep, the proper tool is the best, seconds to take it off. Failing that, get something skinny enough to get in and pop off the clip.

Insert the tool, or whatever you have, on the crank side.

Clip looks like this:
