You don't take anything off the bolt before removing the charge handle. You just grasp it and pull straight out. It is held in place like the 1100/1187 handles -- by light spring tension. After you get the handle out, the carrier with the bolt riding on it will come out the front of the receiver with a little bit of "worrying" with the shell stops.
