Removing stubborn Injector, please help

Hi All,

So I need to replace an injector on my 2007 sprinter 311 om646 engine.

There is no sign of black death, in fact the rocker is very clean.

I have so far managed to turn it a full turn with a 4 foot bar, which in the end snapped of the top part of the injector, leaving me now only the option of extraction via the base of the injector using a claw type tool, I have managed to snap a laser tool claw with slide hammer.

Is there anything else I can try? what tools exist that use the claw at the base on the injector? is there a hydraulic one with this feature or are they all pulled by the thread at the top ( which I no longer have)?

Please help, transporter has been of the road for over a week now and I desperately need to get it running again.

I have a brand new Bosch Piezo injector and seal waiting to go in.

Any Urgent help greatly appreciated
