Ball joint replacement 07 Megane - I'm STUCK!

Been trying to change the lower suspension ball joint on my 07 Megane estate, but have come to a sticking point Having removed pinch bolt nut and knocked out pinch bolt, i don't seem to be able to shift the top of the ball joint from the strut.

Does anyone know do i just need to hit it hard with a splitter or is there something else? It looks like there might be a small grub screw behind the brake disc holding the top of the ball joint in - see circled in photo
