For the window crank there is a pin you have to drive out. The door opener should be straight forward for you if you get the plastic piece off. Use a small screwdriver. There should be a bolt under the plastic piece to remove the pull.

pull the trigger of the door handle towards you, take a flat head screw driver and and pry out on the flat tab of the little black insert (seen below)

the part on the bottom, once you remove this little shield it will expose a small phillips head.

Good luck

For other reading this (OP already figured it out) 68 and newer window winders are held on with a screw under the plastic handle cover (which pops off at the big end)
