Stuck VSS in transmission 95 Escort

Hi, Does anyone have any experience with removing a broken Vehicle Speed Sensor from a transaxle? Apparently, the typical failure mode is the plastic bit separates from the metal base and the base stays stuck in the
case along with the drive gear. I've seen a few threads about this in other groups but no one has a suggestion on how to free the metal piece and the loose gear from the case. Thanks.

Um, could you JB weld a metal bar to it then just pull it out? Use the slow setting JB weld it's the strongest.
