a towel is just to catch the clip incase if it goes flying off
use a flashlight and push back on your door panel, look for the metal piece under the window crank, it is attached to the door crank... you should be able to just bearly see it. if you have any sharp pointy dentist style tools with hooks or angles to them, those would work well. if not, find a tin metal wire hanger, cut it, and then use needle nose plyers to curl the end of it, as small as you can. Basically, you just need to get something behind that pin to pull it out towards you. I removed afew of these pins before and have yet to lose one or have one go flying out of control, you should be okay.
also people use forks and bend one of the tips upwards in the same manner. also you could go to advanced auto parts or somewhere like that, they sell a tool to do this for less than 5 dollars.
generic internet photo, cavaliers may vary a little, i'm not sure if the crank pulls from under the lever or from behind.
when you go to put the thing back on, you just slide the clip into the crank and then push the whole thing back onto the door and it will snap in.
