Mine was probable in the same state as yours and I tried several ways to get it out without success. At the end I used the screw of a purchased extractor and had the rest fabricated. Be careful to protect the thread at the end of the shaft. I used a socket with external diameter just smaller than the shaft. Here are the pix I took. Feel free to reach me if you need additional explanations
