Default need help 99 grand am 2.4l

I found out I have a bad crankshaft position sensor. I got a new sensor and as I was trying to take the bad one out until the plastic top part broke off and now I cant get it out. How can I removed the metal part out of motor?

If there is nothing left to grab, and you can't somehow pry it out, the last resort is to remove the oil pan and push it out from the inside...

FYI, you should rotate the sensor both ways to loosen it....then rotate and pull at the same time...just prying on the tab is a no-no.....

Glue something to it. (use some type of epoxy glue). Once the glue has fully cured, pull it out.
