you can get a tool to remove it from autozone for about $5 or the trick i used was take an old rag and place it in the middle of the crank and the plastic washer and move it back and forth while pulling up on it. The rag should snag and clip and pop it out enough to get a flat head screwdriver in to remove it the rest of the way

couldnt do it with palstic. it would just break. And the cost of metal handles, just isnt feasable when you mass produce of a car like they do now.
