Default Repack driveshaft CV joint?

Am I able to disassemble, clean and repack my driveshaft CV joint? It doesn't seem to want to come apart and I don't want to force it.

This is the joint that meets with the differential.

Thanks for the input!

Also, do I need to add grease to the differential output flange? I'm guessing not but just wanted to be sure.

I've seen people clean and repack the CV joint. Not sure about the disassembly.

The half shafts get greased, not the output flanges.

Yes you can repack the grease. I have a half tube of it sitting here lol, the PN is 83190447919. Again, don't know if you can take it apart. I've seen a few people also get an extra cover piece off of the regular 3 series that makes it easier to reattach to the input flange without getting grease everywhere. And no, no grease on the differential flange(s) in/out.

That's the output shaft...not the CV on the driveshaft.

The 330 cover lid does not work with our cars. Our input flange is too shallow. I tried

Huh, thought I had seen some people say they had actually used it, that sucks.
