Victory magnet stuck

Problem: I inserted the magnet that fell off the bolt engine of my victory back in. Unfortunately, I inserted it the wrong way. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has found an easier way to remove the magnet from the engine, as prying does not seem to be working, nor do i have another magnet capable of removing it.

Note: the magnet is not glued in, yet it will not come out.... suggestions? I did not use any strength to push the magnet inside the engine, it just inserted easily, yet i am unable to pull it out.

any help would be greatly appreciated, and please ask any questions that could help me get this out.

finally got it out. for future reference, I dremeled a tiny slit beside the magnet to get leverage on it. Also i sharpied the bottom of the magnet so that this doesn't happen again. Hope this can help someone one day.

One other thing you could have tried is get another magnet and see if you could pull it out. You would have to have one that is not mounted on anything so you could flip it over to the right polarity
