Hi and how is everyone? I have started stripping the interior of a 1963 Galaxie to replace but can't see how the handles come off. I thought they were held on with a clip but when I pried the crank away from the panel, I could not see any clips or set screws. Can anyone help with advice? Thanks

My memory ain't so good anymore, but I think those may have a little stick on trim piece in the center of the handle that comes off revealing a screw.

Its a very thin round shiny thing that matches the finish on the handle.

I know I've seen these someplace but its been a long time since I worked on anything of that vintage.

They are held onto the regulator with fairly small hair pin clips. There is a special tool made to push them off without damaging the interior trim panel.

The foil cover over the screw head came in the seventies.

Thanks everyone. I'll check a little closer for the clip.

I found the clips on the handles. Boy, they sure buried them from sight. Built a removal tool by bending a sharp pointed screwdriver at a right angle. Worked fairly well to pull the clip loose. Thanks everyone for the help.
