Can't get window crank off

So I'm looking at the workshop manual illustration on removing the window crank, and they show popping off a center plug to access the screw. Problem is my 97' SW window crank doesn't have that center plug. It's just one piece. Even if I push in on the door casing panel I can't see any snap ring or circlip or any way to get the silly window crank off. Any help?

Buy a window crank remover tool of amazon, slide in and pop of the circlip. super easy with a tool. Push the door card in alittle and you will be able to see the clip and which way to use the tool. did this multiple times recently on my 97

It is the black tool, may be a good time to get some panel poppers as well.
