One needs to be careful using screw extractors in plastic because the plastic expands at a similar rate to the taper on the screw extractor so if there is any tightness in the piece you're trying to remove, it becomes a self-fulfilling problem.
Screw extractor gets tight, plastic expands, plastic gets tighter, screw extractor gets tighter, plastic expands more, plastic gets tighter . . . . . .
Then again, it may come straight out.
I believe a parallel sided tool will work better but that's just me.
