Rear spider gear assembly help

on the rear spider gear carrier assembly theres a rod that goes down between the 3 differential gears. and then at the top theres a bolt that holds that rod in place. my problem is that that bolt that is going through that rod broke off with about 3-4 threads left before it went in the rod. Im asking for advice on how i could get that pin out so i can get the drive shafts out.

Get an EZ-out or a left hand drill bit. You might have to take one of the carrier bearing caps off in order to get a drill in there (I did on my 12-bolt). Make sure you mark the cap if you take it off and then torque it back to the proper spec.

Does anyone know the name of the tool that will force the pin out of the differential and causes the pin to break. My shop teacher mentioned this idea.

Hammer?

I would not try to force the pin out as the sheared bolt will probably gouge the housing on the way out. You will have to easy-out it anway so why not do it now? I would try drive the pin back and forth gently a couple times to loosen the bolt.

it breaks the bolt so the pin can slip out. He forgot the name of it but it looks like a c clamp and its designed for that use.
