4x4 vacuum switch won't come out, HELP

My jeeps 4x4 vacuum switch is stuck in the transfer case, I tried taking it out with a socket and it stripped, then I tried Channel locks and they're too long. I have the new switch but cannot get the old switch out. It just won't budge.

Any suggestions?

4.2 carter carb, ax15 and an np231

Take a sharp chisel and get a good angle hit it hard enough to break it loose. File the edges off and see if you can get it out. The location really sucks but it just may work.

That's a good idea, the access is horrible but might just be enough, I was thinking today if I drilled a hole in it and put a big screwdriver in it to see if I could turn it like that
