Default 92 accord temp sensor broken, and leaks. fix?

The temp sensor snapped, and now it leaks when the car warms up. It broke off at the treads so i cant just take it out. I need to know the easiest and safest(for my car, dont want to mess up the head) way to get it out??

There are a few different things to do like drill it out,heli-coil the treads...etc.But if I were you I'd get a new sensor,go to an engine machine shop.These guys deal with that same stuff all the time and they are masters at getting out broken bolts.Their gadgets for this are endless.Go to a machine shop show them the problem.They may have it out in a couple minutes.Then you can just screw in the new one right there.I just delt with a stripped jet inside a carburetor.I thought it was over.The machinist had it out in 10 minutes.
