OHHHHH the centershaft bolt...
if its broken, your going to fight with it more getting it out rather than pulling and changing the entire axle section...you could use an angle drill and a easy out
but its a *****.
When and if you can get the bolt out of the cross pin .You will need to mike the cross pin hole to see if it is oval .If you can find any difference ,toss the carrier.These newer carriers are softer than the old ones. This also happens in fwd trans. When the hole distorts it lets the pin move and shear the bolt. I have seen the pin slowly walk out and mill a grove in the transmition case. If it happens in a rear diff it is alot more violent .
