wedge a screw driver between the axle and diff plate and pry it away; as mentioned it should just drop or slide away. you're making it far more difficult then it is. :-) once the studs are exposed use some heat and twist out with Vise grips as mentioned.

note: you may have to ground the head flush - from the pic it doesn't look like it has been ground enough
