Broken Spark plug

Does anyboby know how to get a broken spark plug out. I heard that you can remove the head to do it. But It is got to be a easier way to get it off.

What's broken? If it's just the porcelain, a socket will get the metal stub out.

Describe the condition better.

Try to get the plug out. You may have to break it out and drill it.

You can then try to retap new threads into the cylinder head. What type of vehicle?

And this Cavalier's engine size is???? It may be easier to pull the head.

You likely have to retap the threads anyhow.

The Job is done. I ended up removing the head to get it out and retaping the threads once out. Thanks for the help JOE.
