Window Clip

Can someone describe how to unclip a side window from its regulator mechanism? My 156 saloon's rearside near window is jammed open. I have a new regulator on order, but won't be able to fit before next weekend, so want to at least get the window up in the meantime.
I can get my fingers around the clip but, working blind, can't figure out how it works,. I'm also mindful of its age - it may be brittle.
Any help?

Its effectively a plastic "C" clip...if its never been disturbed before its attached to the mechanism by a thin plastic loop, which is attached to the middle of the arc of the "C" it just pulls straight off in the direction of the loop. It may break, but usually doesn't......

If you get stuck, I'll try to get a picture of one and post it.

The loop was broken, but the clip slid out no problem and intact.
