My suggestion? Use a Tamiya Handy Drill and basically "disintegrate" the peg by drilling into it in various places, and then try to dig out the pieces. The reason I specifically said Tamiya's Handy Drill is because it's designed specifically for drilling into plastic. The rotation of the bit is relatively slow and thus won't melt the surrounding plastic, and the small size and weight of the drill makes it much easier to maneuver during precision jobs, compared to the much larger and heavier Dremmel rotary tools or power drills.
Even with the handy drill, it's still a risky job, so if you choose to go ahead with it, be VERY careful and try to gauge how deep the port is by measuring the depth of the port on the other forearm.
Just my two cents' worth. DISCLAIMER
