My thin wall shower arm is broken. I tried an internal pipe wrench to remove the threaded part that remains in the elbow, but it did not work because the internal pipe wrench is for galvanized pipes whose internal diameter is more like 5/8" (rather than 1/2"). I also tried a huge screw extractor, but there isn't enough clearance in the elbow leading to the broker shower arm to grip onto to the screw extractor.

Questions:

Can I remove the broken part that remains in the elbow without tearing down the wall?

If so, how?

Thanks in advance.
