Posted · Can't remove heater. Pt100B dead also

Hi. Yesterday after the 11th nozzle change (really long history) I got filament leak. The aluminium block screw died (part of alu came out when unscrewing the heatbreak). So I cooled it off waiting and after removing the m3 I wasn't able to move the pt100. Tryed pushing from the other side of the hole and nothing. It broke in the end.

Now I have the heater hyper stuck inside. It doesn't move not even a mm.

What are my options? Try to drill the alu block? (I really don't have a room to drill metals safely). Anyone knows a trick? Maybe hitting with a hammer from the exit hole?
