There is a jesus clip behind the crank holding it on. If you do not have the special tool to pop them off you can use a screwdriver but be careful it does not fly off and you lose it. Hence the name jesus clip.

Here is a posting showing it:

Yep...some people also will take a rag and stick it behind there grabbing opposite ends and then rub it back and forth across that clip putting pressure on it and it'll pop loose that way. I've never done it that way, but I've heard it works quite well.
