Default 1.8L diff housing removal

I don't mean to hijack your build thread, but I've picked up a Talon chassis and diff cover/housing, but I'm struggling to work out how to get the existing diff housing off.

From what I can see, you have a standard (?) diff, but mine (see attached pic) has inner drive axles that the drive shafts bolt onto, which prevent you from sliding the carrier from the housing.

Does anyone know how to get it off? I've looked though the manuals on the mellens.net site, but no luck. I think I might have an LSD, which I keep reading you shouldn't take apart.

See pic below. Sorry if my question is daft, but any advice (or abuse) welcome.

i believe once you have unbolted the shafts the drive flanges lever out like any other drive shaft

Thanks. Tried a crow bar and a little elbow grease but no luck.

Prying one out seems to draw the other one in.

I'm reluctant to put too much force into it in case I damage it.

Where did you hear about it? Do you have a link?

Thanks.

It helps if you pry the joint awy from the casing evenly with two bars 180o apart. Assertive taps with a hammer to the flange whilst doing this also helps to break it free.
