Best way to get broken sensor out from block.
 
I broke off the ect switch below the distributor. It is sealed and i used some stuff to glue the plug back on top. What is best way to get that lower part out. Is there some tool that extends teeth outwards to grip the walls then screw it out? I know i can't leave it this way forever and i want to replace that switch at some point but i wanted some advice on best way to remove this first.

I would try a left handed drill bit. Though that sensor is probably stuck in there pretty good so they might not work.

I got a screw extractor, which is basically a left hand tapered drill. I think it will come out ok. Will do it when i get my oem sensor.

How bad is it broken? I thought most of the sensors were removable because there is a way to put a socket around it to loosen/tightened?
