Pictures would help, but here is a guess.

Remove the brake cables, then pull the lever to the max brake position, and look down between the lever and the housing from the front, under where the cable goes; you should see a screw. Loosen this, and the levers should slid off.

These are a good replacement lever:

Also, Tektro dual pivot side pull brakes will bring your stopping distances into the 21st century - best upgrade that I made to my commuter, went from scary long to calm.
