Receiver/Drier Not Replaceable?

The car is a 2009 BMW 328i and I'm looking to replace the receiver/drier. The top of the tube on the side of the condenser appears to be welded. (It's in an awkward spot, so it's tough to get a really good look at it.) Would the RD normally drop out the bottom? The parts places all listed the RD as fitting "to 01/09" and the car was made in 01/09. Does this look like the type that's not replaceable? I'll put the car up on jacks tomorrow and have a better look. (It's getting late and I don't feel like screwing around with it tonight.) The bigger black round piece isn't just a cap that can be removed, correct? (This is a picture of the bottom of the R/D.)
