Without the tool. I just stick a shop towel between the door panel and crank lever & pull up & down (parallel to the door panel).  I have the tool, but usually do it this way because I think its easier.  The horseshoe clip usually falls straight down.

I have the tool but in the old days I'd take a paperclip, straighten it out, bend a little "L" on the end of it and grab the other end in a vice grip. Then push the door panel in slightly to see the top of the clip. Slide the L in there, hook it and pull up.
Sounds like a lot of work but actually real easy and quick.
I think I still have that paperclip in the bottom of my toolbox somewhere.

Any tip on getting the top panel off? I'm having troubles with the clips that hold it on and don't wish to break the plastic.

Great idea using the shop towel, John! Bonus is that you don't scratch the door panel.

I've removed dozens of top panels and some come off farily easily and others you have to use some force. Always best to roll the window down as the panel needs to be lifted up and towards the outside. I usually pull the bottom out a ways with one hand while getting my fingers under one upper end and giving it a quick upward pull with that hand. If it doesn't come off that end after one or two tries, try the other end. Seems once one is loose, the other can be worked loose.
