You missed a couple of steps:

Soak the screw and sensor body with penetrating fluid (like PB Blaster, Kroil, etc.)
Wait for as long as you can stand it, but at minimum, an hour.
Remove Allen screw
Spray with more penetrating fluid
Wait some more
When you finally feel lucky, carefully grip the sensor top and try to gently twist it
If/when it breaks free, remove it

Good luck.
