Here's a pic of the inside posted by Rayo that clearly shows the bearing caps, inside the diff.
You could probably pull them out the side, but I doubt it will be reassemble-able later.
It has to come off, be taken apart, and rebuilt; most likely.
All the pieces of that bearing ate in there somewhere, and I have yet to take one apart that still has the brass shims intact; they're usually smeared throughout the gearset.
Pulling it isn't too bad; one suspension side off is fine.
Just unbolt the DS (12mm bolts), and unbolt the assembly and pull toward the side that's off, the other side pops right out with a screwdriver.
The old grease is the worst part...
