It can be taken out . Try a small chisel to the edge of the easy out to see if you can loosen it enough to jiggle it out. Its a pretty hard chunk of steel so it may chip a little . try to loosen it by tapping it in the direction that the easy out will back out.If it is a square fluted design all you need to do is get it loose and you might be able to lift it out. Worst case scenario would be to drill out the broken stem of the unit by drilling a series of holes all the way around it so you can gain enough clearance to knock it loose in its hole.I doubt you will have to go that far but if so it can be kind of tediuos to perform.
