    Any slightly hooked pick tool can grab that clip and pull it from the window regulator. You have to make sure that the clip doesn't go flying and get lost that way. That's how we did it years ago before the clip tools ever showed up on the tool trucks. My original tool was a broken choke cable wire that I bent at a 90 degree angle (approx. 1/4" high)
