That damage had to be from internal self destruct.(you can see rotational damage). I think the difficulty in removing the CV was a symptom not the cause. The paste not liquid is the clue (also completely dry gears).

So as costly as it was, evidence indicates that dif was shot and had the CV come out, you'd have set yourself up for the dif blowing apart at speed on the highway.

Blessing in disguise.
