Mixet shower valve replacement

I'm working on a Mixet shower valved replacement, and not sure what my next step is.
I have a replacement, and am taking out the current one, but not sure I got the whole thing out.
Attached are two photos - one with the removed cartridge and the new one next to it. The stop stem on the removed one on the left is actually down in the plastic, as the plastic was pulled over it while pulling it out.
The second photo is what's still in the pipe in the wall.
It seems like when I pulled it out, the whole thing didn't come out, and maybe broke off(?).
The threads on the old piece I pulled out are reverse threads- those would have gone into that remaining piece in the pipe.

I'm not sure what I need to do at this point.
I'm thinking I need to put together some type of puller, with reverse threads, to pull out that piece remaining in the pipe so the new one will then go in. Does that sound right?
This shower has only been used maybe 3-4 times in the past 10 years, so I'm thinking that piece is just stuck in there, and broke off in some way when I pulled out the old cartridge, but can't really tell from either the old cartridge, or from what I can see on what is still in there.

Re: Mixet shower valve replacement

Use a metal drill bit that is slightly larger then the hole in the reminder of the cartridge. It should snag the reminder and spin it with a little luck you can pull it out. DO NOT SCRATCH the outer brass part.
