Remove the spline key shaped like an L and then unscrew the dial and spindle.

see photos here:

The spline key can be seen sticking out in this photo, pull it straight out, do not wiggle or it will break the tab off and you'll have to do lots more work to get it out:

Please remember safe discussion is reserved for the Advanced areas. Lots of these basic safe questions lately from people, but please remember, and this goes to anyone reading this thread, that any safe cracking, manipulation, or destructive entry is not allowed in the public forum. I think basic installation or something like this is ok to post, but that is up for review and may change in the near future.
