Try grabbing the slightly exposed end with visegrips to get a good hold. I've had to use a small punch before to get it started. Best of luck!!

apply heat and see if that frees things up

however, if its that stuck you're probably better off replace'n the plastic as well

I wouldn't recommend this. I've seen several hex tips chip when used to try and tap out a stuck hinge pin. Another hinge pin or punch is best.
