differential, damn dana 35

I need to pull the carrier from my jeep. my carrier is more of a box shape instead of being curved. someone told me that this is the factory form of limited slip... is this true? if not, why is it like that? and how the hell do i get it out of the differential case??? internet sites and books say to remove the retaining bolt from the carrier and remove the pin, and then push the axle in, then remove the c-clips... first of all, i dont' have a retaining bolt... its a roll pin, and what c-clips?. do all i need to do is remove the axle and the bearing retainers to get it out? or is there more to it than that? if you have suggestions, or know exactly what to do... any help would be appreciated...

Ok, so it's a roll pin, no biggie, just use a long narrow punch to drive it out. Then pull the cross-shaft. Once you do that, you'll be able to push the axleshafts inward. You'll see a c-clip on the end of each axle. Once you remove those c-clips, the shafts will slide right out. Then remove the bearing caps and you might be able to pull the carrier out. If not, you'll have to leverage it out. A big crowbar helps.
