How to remove faucet handle

How do you go about removing the handle on the faucet in this picture?

One would think the little caps on the handles would pop off, but they didn't. I just used my fingernail and it's like they couldn't lift off. I didn't want to try a screwdriver before checking here to see if anybody has any hints.

Thank you for the responses.

I saw that web site and tried 4a, but it didn't work. The only part that rotates is the handle part. The area below the handle doesn't rotate.

I would think it would be a cap on the handle, but I didn't want to gouge or scratch the handle if it won't work.

I'm open to other ideas!!

Thank you all for the responses.

When I got home today, I used a rubber strap wrench and was able to rotate the area right under the handle in order to remove it, just like everybody mentioned. I didn't scratch anything and it worked out great.

Thanks for the help!!
