Outer CV boot question - 159 2.4

Can I pick your brains.
Plan on changing out the N/S outer CV gaiter providing I can source the bands/straps today (got gaiters already). There's a tiny nick, no damage to the joint.

Hub nut, brakes/ cables etc aside, could someone confirm what exactly needs to be undone to change the gaiter (with the shaft remaining on the car). Assume top ball joint, lower ball joint and strut lower fork bolt?. Would be grateful for clarity before getting stuck in.

I would disconnect the inner joint from the diff flange, remove the inner joint complete with boot, then remove the outer joint boot, fit new boot, and reassemble.
