    Scroll down 3 or 4 photo's on here http://www.fq101.co.uk/how-to-guides...d-upgrade.html
    Remove the centre bit as described there....

    then use long nose pliers I guess

    As for glueing it back together ?............ get a new part ordered from a dealer !!

    Mine did that a few years ago. Luckily I was able to remove it in one piece.

    A new replacement part from the dealer was around 5-ish from what I remember.

    FWIW, I had exactly the same issue. I got the broken piece out yesterday. Drilled a 2mm hole in the broken off stump, screwed a long self tapper into the hole and pulled. Fairly easy.
