So I got it out all in one piece using a #4 square easy out (sold at Sears) + a 10 mm knurl grip deep universal socket (sold at Home Depot). The easy out didn't dig in a ton but enough to turn the threads of the broken spark plug. I had to use my magnetic rod tool to get the spark plug thread out of the hole once it was unscrewed. Photos coming soon.

Anyway, I replaced the spark plugs on cylinder #3 and #1 (passenger side) and not the other two (driver's side).

When I started the car the idle is a bit high at around 1.5-2k RPM. The car also had the CEL on with two codes: P0102 and P0113. From a quick search, it looks like this is related to the air intake, which I did have to remove to do the passenger side spark plugs. I'll try a few tricks and will let you know how it goes.

EDIT: I had a loose clamp on the air intake. Once I tightened that, reset the CEL, and restarted the car - the CEL disappeared and the idling slowly came back down to 750.
