Broken Cartridge Stem

Hi all.....a customer of mine broke the stem off of her cartridge. It's a Moen single handle shower cartridge. Any ideas on how to get that sucker out so we can replace the cartridge?

That's ugly.I've never run into that----My helper did,however and the solution involved a pair of long nosed Vice Grips and a drill.

He was successful and is now a firm believer in the use of a Moen valve pulling tool.
Good luck--
I'd try drilling out as much of the cartridge as I could--being careful not to damage the valve body--
A Moen valve pulling tool is a good value.
