Removing broken shaft from ARB

i dont currently have a broken shaft but i've like to be prepared incase

so whats the best way to remove a broken shaft from an ARB locker? assuming i dont have a welder or a magnet on a stick. Does the arm off any room at all to stick something through the crosspin to knock the broken shaft out? is there a way to do this without removing the whole diff?

I had to cut the short side of the locker in half once. Alloy shaft was broke off and would not move. I cut it right behind the bearing to get the carrier out. ARB has fantastic customer service. They sent me the short side case half for $110.

Depending on where the shaft breaks and how clean of a break it was has a great impact on the success rate of removing the broken shaft with a magnet. Its still worth it to carry a magnet with you, but its not a guaranteed way to get it out. You could try pulling the opposite axle and pushing the broken piece out with a small piece of rod.

Did this with an ARB a couple of years ago. Used the stock antenna with the ball tip cut off.
