Depends on whether or not you have already done damage. It is usually removed by putting a ratchet in the hole and loosening it but if it is like the one I did today on my buddies rollback I had to drill the center out and use an easy out. If you dip the drill bit in grease the shavings won't fall in the rear.

blast it with sime sort of penetrating oil kroil is my favorite let it soak overnight and thread it out. if it binds up thread it back in a few threads then back it out continue as necessary. if that doesnt work then move on to the more agressive methods. mine came right out once it broke loose

Use penetrating oil on it, and use a small punch to get all the rust out of the area where you stick the extension in. Then pound a 3" extension in it and take it out.
