Glow plug removal Help!!!

So while im waiting for my injectors to come i figured id go over my motor...so i found i had a broken glow plug strap on my drivers side. in the process of taking it off i broke the stud off three of the glow plugs. so i tried taking a glow plug out it just seemed like it wasnt gonna come out of the head without breaking. i sprayed the piss out of them with pb blaster. one of the plugs actually broke the heating element halfway inside the glow plug...will the other end fall into the head?!!!

very shitty. i wanted this to go fast but it didnt happen. luckily once i pulled the head i worked the sh*t outta plug 6 and 8 and got them out and then the machine shop only charged me 70 bucks to remove and tap the other two. But pulling the head has cost me an extra 250

I just broke 2 off today in mine. I was able to get the old ones out without pulling the head.
