its a "C" clip. If you push on the door enough to see between the handle and circular plastic trim piece you will see it. It is made of metal so I doubt you will break it. Neat little trick, get a shop rag, put it between the handle and the trim ring (make sure the handle is turned so the rag is on the open side of the "C"), and do a flossing motion while applying pressure against the clip. Should pop right out.

depends on how it was installed. just use a tiny screwdriver to spread the trim piece a little bit, and you will see.
