Heat the thing up till the platic is very soft then wedge something in under the peg and pop it out.

Try screwing in a screw till it's nice and tight, heat the joint then use pliers to pull on the other end of the screw.......pop!!!!

If you can reach the peg with plyers/tweezers/forceps, then simply heat the limb with some boiling water or a hair dryer, and pull out the peg.

Dremel works too if you don't want to slice the sleave open. Just drill into the broken peg and once theres a hole in the peg it should scoop right out.

Take an x-acto and cut the sleeve (length wise, not across) and peel it open till you can get a grip on it with some needle-nose pliers. Then, yank it out.
