It will not fall in, the hole is tapered.

You have 2 choices. IMO! :rolleyes:

A easy out. Our a extractor.

Or you can take a small punch, and try collapsing the tube, then pull it out with some needle nose pliers.

I used a drill bit to get mine out when i broke it off...worked like a charm
I DID NOT drill it out! I walked out the remaining piece of the tube!

I just pored A LOT of oil through it after i finished (just incase i got metal shavings in there)
