PCV. Not PCP.

The grommet always dries up and breaks apart, it just falls into a small valley in the valve cover, not down into the cylinder head. Break it as little as you can, then use a pick, needle nose pliers, or anything similar to get the pieces out of the area they fall into.

You might also clean the old grommet of oil/grease and cut a piece of adhesive tape (like duct tape) to go over the grommet. When the grommet starts to break apart, the smaller pieces will adhere to the tape and make the cleanup easier.

Steady pull pressure and a figure 8 motion. It will eventually come out. Mine was old and took a bit to get out as well.. Pliers worked for me but I replaced it with a new one anyway.
