I had this happen once too. I used a 4 1/2 in. angle grinder to cut open the cylinder. I made a couple of cuts along the axis of the cylinder, one on the top and one on the bottom. I was then able to split the cylinder the rest of the way and remove it in two pieces. I'm sure a die grinder would work too, but it would likely take a lot longer than a small grinder.

Ouch. It's painful to use such drastic methods, but you risk hurting the parts you really want to preserve if you use too much force.
