Outer CV joint removal

Replacing a freshly torn front outer CV boot on a 2012 528xi.

Is the joint held on by a c clip and can be popped off the axle?

If yes, what's the best method. I have upper ball joint apart and plenty of room, but don't want to force if that's not the way.

Axle is still installed in diff.

Got it off. Surprisingly this was one of the easier boots I've done. Just took some persuasion haha.
