A trick an old mechanic taught me:
Mix 50% acetone with 50% Automatic Transmission Fluid. (Keep mixture tightly capped as the acetone evaporates off, quickly, in a few days if not).
Keep the corroded parts soaked in this mixture. May require several applications per day.
Do this for 3 or 4 days. This mixture should penetrate the corrosion and loosen things up enough to remove. If, after this, it’s still frozen, clean up, and apply heat.
This stuff has always worked for me.
Good luck.

The issue is that the rod is dead ended so it can't be knocked out....there's nothing to get a grip on to pull it either.
