You mean the spider gear pin retainer bolt? If so only one way I know to remove it, BFH and a BFP! Drive it out of the gear carrier, sheering the remaining part of the retainer bolt cause it has got to come out! Big hammer & punch. Remaining part of the bolt can be removed after pin is out. Have you done this type of repair before? I mean without the broken bolt deal, just in general. This procedure prob. not found in a book! However it will get the job done.
