    I am unsure on the 4x4 E46 but if it is anything like a E53, there should be a circlip on the shaft into the box. using a crowbar/bar of some kind, levering and shocking the cv shaft out.

    To confirm, ring BMW and simply ask to be directed to the workshop in concern to repairs to a car in your "workshop". You might be lucky and get the info you need
