I have had to drill them out before but go to your lhs first and see if they have a pinion gear puller.

If it's a 1.5mm and you havent trashed it completely use a imperial 1/16th to get it out and throw it away. (it's 1.59mm)

Pinion gear puller grabs the back of the pinion with a center piece pushes on the motor shaft. Sometimes you can dremel a slot into the setscrew and get it that way.

If you don't care if you trash the pinion you can carefully cut it off with a dremel. Cut a slot down the whole thing, you'll likely have to cut at an angle \.

Not always easy but it can be done sometimes, might save you a trip to the LHS.
