Bash a socket over it and undo it, it will break.

If youre changing the track rod end anyway it wont matter.

If you are putting it back on then you need a small punch to push the broken pin through.

Yeah drilling it will he fine. A good impact gun is great for breaking them off too

I was thinking spraying it with wd40 and leave it for a time and try and use a punch to get it out as i dont want to brake the drill bit in the hole
