Servicing a Formula Freehub - Is it possible.

I finally got the 12mm hex wrench that I need to remove freehub so I can re-grease the bearings. The problem is that i'm applying lots and lots of force and the thing won't budge for sh1t! Am I doing something wrong? Or is it possible that the hub is non-serviceable?

just to give you an idea, when i worked at an auto shop and the impact gun was not avaliable, I removed bolts from SUV wheels with less force than this

From the formula hub tech section, can't tell which way the free hub thread is going for disassembly.
