You pop the center carrier off also? Should just be able to persuade it with a metal hammer.

Don't whack it with a metal hammer, you can damage the joint. It just takes some time to walk it off using a deadblow. It's a large joint, and often gets stuck.

Laying under car put one hand on drive shaft and one hand on diff snout. Shake vigorously should separate. Metal hammer no dead blow or rubber malet yes.
I know mine hit me in the face when I popped it out last time.
