there is a tool available from a auto parts store to remove the handle
it is a flat section piece of steel strap that has a a square section cut out of the end
place the tool under the handle and push it between the handle and the plastic wear washer for the trim
push it forward and it expands a "C" clip that holds the handle on the shaft
full the handle off
before refitting the handle push the clip back into place and then just push the handle back on the shaft till it clicks
