Default damaged ball joint

i went to grease my joints last night and couldn't grease the upper ball joint. the fitting got ripped off when the axle shaft broke. got any ideas how to easy out it in such a tight spot, hopefully without pulling shaft again. lol

does anyone have a small right angle drill air or elec. that might help with drilling it out. also would an easy out set have one small enough to fit in the grease hole?
