I'm assuming that yours isn't held on by a screw - that being the case there's probably a small "U" shaped metal spring/clip thing that engages a slot where the crank goes over the splined shaft. Gently push back the door card behind the crank and see if you can locate it.
To remove it, a blunted screwdriver has been known to work (be careful not to damage the doorcard) - to put it back on the easiest way is to put it into the groove on the crank and THEN shove the whole shebang over the splined shaft.

Your handle probably just pops on and off. Push the door panel in right by the handle. You should be able to see some tabs at the end of the handle. Take a screw driver and pry up on one of the tabs while pulling on the handle. It should pop right off.

Take a rag and put between handle & door panel.
Then work it like you were polishing boots,back and forth motion.
The clip will come off,just watch were it goes
