An expensive but effective way to remove a hardened dowel if other methods won't work is to take the case to a high end tool and die shop that has an EDM machine. The EDM machine uses a carbide electrode in a fluid bath to eat away at the dowel. The expense would have to balanced against the cost of replacing the case.
