    Get the next size up Torx socket and pound it in there till it bottoms. Get a propane torch and heat the plug a bit and then you can remove it. Been there done that!

    I have removed them by a combination of heating with MAPP torch and using a chisel around the edge. Use a sharp chisel to start, then a blunt one on angle to unscrew it.

    I use a cut off wheel, cut a slot in the plug then use a chisel
