remove broken '85 90 ROW stop light switch

Looking for tips...i can't be the first person to have this happen.

I had the brake pedal tower off and, despite being careful, must have damaged the stop light switch. Of curse, the damage d/n manifest itself until a few days later when the switch actually broke leaving a portion of the threaded part in the pedal housing.

Anyone have any clever thoughts on getting the remainder of the switch out? I will start w/ trying to jam a bit in there and backing it out....

That is a nice tight space to be working on. Can you super glue something on the remainder to aid at backing it out? It should turn out pretty easy.

Great minds! One of the first things I tried was superglue, but it did not hold and I also used it very sparingly so as not to glue the threads.

I finally succeeded with a hex bit, tapped in and holding side pressure as I turned w/ a 1/4" ratchet....PITA
