    Can't say for sure about a 200 Dakota, but all hand cranks I have removed were held on by a u-clip behind the handle itself. You have to push the door panel back to create a gap behind the hub of the handle. You should see the two ends of a wire clip tight against the back of the hub. Use a medium-sized standard screwdriver to push the clip away and off by one of these ends. Once the clip is off, the handle will practically fall off in your hand.
