1991 corvette oil pressure sensor plastic stuck Sign In

I suppose the title does it justice, but the clarify I have a l98 engine on a 91 corvette and I was replacing the oil pressure sensor I F**ked up and broke it off. The plastic piece inside the sensor broke where the threading is (for reference here is the picture)

Don’t know what to do I was trying to pry out the sides of the plastic piece maybe if I got one side I could somehow move it and slide it off but I wasn’t really successful plus it’s a pretty bad angle.

No big deal. There is a special socket that fits that thing and just thread it out and replace it.

Yes - you still have the metal "non-hex" part that tool will grab. Access is the game these are tight like everything. If need be with socket for it IDK if a "basin" (* I'll look for that and come back with a pic if found) wrench for plumbing would grab the socket at some funky angle.
Those are plumbing threads with sealer and thread lock will be feisty new one should come with that.
It's probably pouring out oil there now - can't ignore this if you have to just plug it till you succeed,
