I haven't pulled the DS from an X5, but on every other BMW I've done it on, it's necessary to drop the CSB first. Usually there's a centering pin that goes into the transmission's output shaft that's too long to let it come down without the slack in the shaft that comes with dropping the CSB.
2001 X5 Sport 3.0/5-speed
1998 318ti/5-speed
1988 735i/5-speed
1984 528e/5-speed (soon to be M20B25-powered 525i!)
